Other Events and Notes of Interest

PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: May 18

Presents the part two of the NOVA video “Decoding the Weather Machine” on Friday, May 18, at noon, in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. Disastrous hurricanes. Widespread droughts and wildfires. Withering heat. Extreme rainfall. It is hard not to conclude that something’s up with the weather, and many scientists agree. It’s the result of the weather machine itself—our climate—changing, becoming hotter and more erratic. In this two-hour documentary, NOVA will cut through the confusion around climate change. Sponsored by the Information Office. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.

PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: May 25

Presents the video “Day the Dinosaurs Died” on Friday, May 25, at noon, in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. Sixty-six million years ago, a seven-mile-wide asteroid collided with Earth, triggering a chain of events that coincide with the end of the dinosaurs. But experts have long debated exactly what happened when the asteroid struck and how the giant beasts met their end. Now, scientists have uncovered compelling new clues about the catastrophe. Sponsored by the Information Office. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.

WOODS HOLE HISTORICAL MUSEUM: MAY 19

“Global Citizens of Falmouth” is the topic of the next Woods Hole Historical Museum Conversation on Saturday, May 19, at 11 a.m., at the Woods Hole Library lower level meeting room. A panel of four Falmouth residents will speak about their experiences of living and learning in communities around the world, from serving in the Peace Corps in Lesotho, Guyana, and Cameroon to developing libraries in villages in Egypt, United Arab Emirates, Nigeria, and Azerbaijan.

SEA EDUCATION ASSOCIATION (SEA): June 5

Will host a public lecture, “Maintaining a Tall Ship: An In-Depth Look at the SSV Corwith Cramer’s Major Maintenance Project,” on Tuesday, June 5, at 5:30 p.m. Capt. Jen Haddock, SEA marine operations coordinator, will deliver the lecture, which will be held at the James L. Madden Center Lecture Hall, Sea Education Association, 171 Woods Hole Road. It is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.

PRESENTATION: FALMOUTH'S PUBLIC DRINKING WATER SUPPLY INCLUDING DISTRIBUTION & FILTRATION SYSTEMS: June 6

On Wednesday, June 6, WHOI's Sustainability Committee is sponsoring two special programs at Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water Street, Woods Hole. From 5 - 6:30 p.m., all WHOI employees, students, postdocs, and volunteers are invited to a presentation by Falmouth's Water Superintendent, Stephen Rafferty, on our public drinking water supply. An overview including our water sources, "state-of-the-art" filtration plant, and distribution system will be described. A second presentation on the same topic will be offered and open to the general public later that evening from 7 - 8:30 p.m. A lottery for a “Water Plant” tour will be held at the end of each presentation with each attendee given one chance to win one of 12 places on the tours. Both tours will take place on Wednesday, June 13 at 5:30 p.m., and at 7 p.m.

WOODS HOLE PUBLIC LIBRARY: Week of May 14

The library will be screening its next documentary film on May 14 and 16. The Monday performance will begin at 7 p.m.; the Wednesday show will start at 1 p.m. This event is a collaboration with POV, PBS' award-winning nonfiction film series. The film is Bill Nye: Science Guy,about the man who was a star of the popular PBS kids' show who is now advocating for the importance of science, research, and discovery in public life. With intimate and exclusive access—as well as plenty of wonder and whimsy—this behind-the-scenes portrait of Nye follows him as he takes off his Science Guy lab coat and takes on those who deny climate change, evolution, and a science-based worldview. The library is proud to host a display of art created by students from Falmouth High School. Once again, teacher Jane Baker has shown her impressive talent for inspiring her high school students to become involved in the creative process and produce beautiful works of art, both in words and images. Students in her studio art classes have created artwork inspired by their trips to four Cape Cod lighthouses. This art will be exhibited simultaneously in the library and Nobska Lighthouse from May 20 to May 27. The exhibit at the library will be open during all library hours. Ms. Baker was awarded a grant from the Falmouth Education Foundation to fully underwrite the project which is called “To The Lighthouse.” Thanks to that grant, she was able to take her students down-Cape to visit the lighthouses at Nauset, Highland and Race Point, as well as their own Nobska. They were further asked to create a piece of writing to correspond with one of their images. These will be included in the exhibit. The pieces will be offered for sale; all proceeds will go to help the “Friends of Nobska Lighthouse” in their ongoing effort to maintain Falmouth’s own lighthouse. There will be an exhibit reception open to the public on Tuesday, May 22, from 4 to 5:30 p.m., at the library. There will be tours of Nobska at that time. For more information, call the library at
(508) 548-8961, or visit the library’s website www.woodsholepubliclibrary.org.
