People in the Northwest have been reporting encounters with the Sasquatch—a hairy, eight- to ten-foot-tall hominid —for hundreds of years.  Yet aside from a collection of large footprint casts and several fairly convincing eyewitness accounts, no scientifically accepted evidence has been offered to establish this being’s existence. This illustrated talk looks at ways to become an effective “citizen scientist,” gathering credible evidence that can be used to prove or disprove the Sasquatch’s existence.  Audience members are encouraged to tell their tales and share their experiences with this mysterious creature – a favorite part of this thought-provoking evening.

David George Gordon is the author of The Sasquatch Seeker’s Field Manual: Using Citizen Science to Uncover North America’s Most Elusive Creature. An accomplished science communicator, he has spoken at the American Museum of Natural History, The Philadelphia Academy of Sciences, Yale University, the Smithsonian Institution and Ripley’s Believe It or Not! museums in Hollywood and Times Square. Copies of David’s book will be available for purchase in the museum store. A book signing will follow the lecture.
