“David Attenborough’s Light on Earth” Film
Thursday, November 8, 2018,
7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
The spectacular light produced by glowworms, fireflies, and plankton is known as “bioluminescence” – light made by living creatures. But those familiar glows and flashes are just a tiny fragment of the bioluminescent world. Explore the mysterious realm of living light with this award-winning documentary film, which follows David Attenborough and a team of researchers as they investigate the science of bioluminescence, including several species found right here in New England. Following the film, local mycologist Dave Wichland will give a brief talk to “shed some light” on bioluminescent mushrooms.
7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Putnam Theater at Keene State College. For more information, please contact Brett Amy Thelen at (603) 358-2065 or by email.
