February 12 : ”Light Pollution – More Than a Barrier to Sky Gazing”
– Tom Fleming
Tom is a lifetime educator to both students and the public. His degrees are in Astronomy and Mathematics with an emphasis on Physics. He has devoted himself to connecting them to the natural world in ways more easily understood. An avid photographer since the late ’60’s, he images all aspects of the natural world. He has been coping with the impact of light pollution on the aesthetics of the night sky since the beginning of his career. This presentation will begin with the exploration of the impact of artificial light on organisms coping with that alteration to their environment and then expand to examine very broad concepts that bring all aspects of environmental pollution under their umbrella.
The Texas Master Naturalist program develops local teams of “master volunteers” to provide educational and outreach services aimed at the better management of natural resources and natural areas within their communities. The Texas Master Naturalist program is a partnership between the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, Texas Parks & Wildlife, and other local partners. We meet in the Science Resource Center at the end of the road – NOT the main museum building and parking lot which you’ll pass on the right. There may be occasional exceptions to the meeting place – check this calendar for details.
