Next Science Café to feature writer Doug Alderson

The next installment of Thomas University’s Science Café series on Tuesday, Jan. 29, will feature Doug Alderson presenting “Exploring our Region by Foot, Bike and Kayak.”

Aldersonis the author of several books, including “Wild Florida Waters,” “The Great Florida Seminole Trail,” “Waters Less Traveled,” “New Dawn for the Kissimmee River,” “Encounters with Florida’s Endangered Wildlife” and “A New Guide to Old Florida Attractions: From Mermaids to Singing Towers,” which the Florida Writers Association placed in the top five of published books for 2017.

He has won four first-place Royal Palm Literary awards for travel books and several other state and national writing and photography awards. Additionally, his articles and photographs have been featured in magazines such as Sea Kayaker, Coast and Kayak, Wildlife Conservation, Native Peoples, American Forests, Sierra, Mother Earth News and A.T. Journeys. He received the inaugural Environmental Service Award by Paddle Florida in 2015 “for conspicuous commitment, unflagging dedication and love of Florida’s natural environment.”

Each Science Café begins with a reception with the speaker in the lobby of Smith-Bonvillian Hall on TU’s Forbes Campus at 6 p.m. followed by the presentation at 6:30 p.m. in the Flowers Foods Executive Classroom. There is no admission charge, and the public is welcome.
