Have you ever wondered why our hearing gets worse as we age? Why you can’t see colors at night? Why some smells make us want to gag while we make others into perfumes? Join Co-Director Eleanor Harris and Education Associate Bridget Bradshaw for a 3-part series where they discuss the biology of vision, hearing, and smelling through the lens of other animals and compare it to our own perceptions of the world. Each evening will begin with a short presentation indoors and be followed by an exploratory activity or experiment. Tea and cookies will be provided!

Cost: $30 ($25 for Friends of the Clifton Institute)

Age: Adults only.

Weather policy: Rain or shine!
