Greetings! Washington University’s Science On Tap will meet again Wednesday, April 25th, 7pm-8:30pm at the Kirkwood Station Restaurant & Brewing Company (KSB), at 105 E. Jefferson Ave. in Kirkwood, where  Joseph Steensma, EdD, MPH, CIH, Professor of Practice, Public Health and Social Entrepreneurship at the George Warren Brown School of Social Work and Institute of Public Health will speak on Bird Bonds: How people connect to birds and how birds connect us to each other. Prof. Steensma is a successful entrepreneur who founded and led several pubic health companies including co-founding Industrial Solutions, Inc. a premier occupational and environmental health company, purchased by Humana. He teaches classes in environmental health and the public health implications of climate change. He has a fascination with birds and has learned much from them that extends to his business practices and other facets of his life. Come learn about birds from a local expert and TEDxGatewayArch speaker!

People, communities, ecosystems and seasons are connected through birds. From Belleville to the Bahamas, from Ellis Island to Andros Island, our communities are connected through birds. Join us for an evening of exploring these connections with Washington University professor, author, and a foremost expert on birds of the Bahamas, Joe Steensma. Dr. Steensma has spent the past 24 winters in the Bahamas studying the neotropical migrants that pour through the Mississippi Flyway each year on their way to their winter homes. Known as much for his humor as he is for his birding exploits, Dr. Steensma weaves science and story-telling together in such a way that even non-birders leave wanting to learn more about the birds that connect us. He is the co-author of A Field Guide to Birds of North Andros Island.

Please note that Science On Tap moved in 2015. Our new home at Kirkwood Station Restaurant & Brewing Company is able to accommodate 200+ people and thus you should not be turned away. Parking is easier, too. Parking is available in the brewery's lot and in the adjacent lot of the First Presbyterian Church of Kirkwood (corner of E. Adams and N. Taylor Aves.). Street parking is also free. You can order a delicious dinner and enjoy the local brew, too.

Now in its 13th year, Science On Tap sponsored by Washington University in St. Louis is always a free event. We meet on the last Wednesday of the month during the academic year, except in November and December due to the holidays. For more information, please visit
