Nerd Nite goes underground
Tuesday, January 14, 2020 by Tai Moses
Nerd Nite Austin is teaming up with the Austin Cave Festival to present a night of fascinating talks devoted to all things underground, such as salamanders, geology, groundwater chemistry, caves – and the creatures who call them home. You’ll also learn about volunteer opportunities for those who want to help protect Austin’s fragile cave systems and wildlands. The event is free. There will be food and drink available for purchase from Pueblo Viejo and the North Door. Wednesday, Jan. 22; doors open at 7:30 p.m., show begins at 8 p.m., Great Hall, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, 4801 La Crosse Ave. (Next month we’ll tell you all about the Austin Cave Fest, which comes to town Feb. 22.)
