  • Brown Bag Lunch Lecture

    12:00 PM-1:00 PM

    Brown Bag Lunch Lecture
    May 18, 2017
    12-1 p.m.

    Brown Bag Lunch Lecture – May 18, 2017
    AUGUST 17, 2009 BY ADMIN
    The benefits and costs of cooperation in societies:
    perspectives from a social insect specialist.

    Presented by Dr. Jessica Purcell, UCR

    Social insects have successfully spread into most environments on earth, and exhibit a tremendous variety of lifestyles and social structures. It is fascinating what diversity of strategies have evolved in these tiny societies, that allow these insects to exploit resources and compete successfully from Arctic to tropical latitudes. In this talk, Dr. Purcell will focus on two components of her research. First, the geographic patterns in the distribution of alternative social forms in spiders and ants, and what these patterns reveal about the environmental factors that shape insect societies. Second, how insect societies cooperate to overcome major environmental hurdles. Specifically, she will explain research on the formation of complex structures, such as ant rafts, that improve group survival during emergencies. She will also describe new research directions that are focusing on the social life and ecology of our local desert ants.

    Dr. Purcell was thrilled to learn that she could put her curiosity about the natural world to good use during her undergraduate studies in biology at Williams College in rural Massachusetts. Upon the advice of her mentors, she spent the first couple of years after graduation living abroad and conducting research on declining Andean woodlands and migratory Arctic geese in Bolivia and Sweden, respectively. She then returned to graduate school at the University of British Columbia, with the goal of understanding why a small number of spider species form highly cooperative social groups. Dr. Purcell’s fascination with tiny societies continued with a postdoc on ant sociality at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland, and she now runs a lab at UC Riverside studying the causes and consequences of cooperation in social insects including native and invasive ants and wasps, and, occasionally, social spiders.

    Bring your lunch, bring your friends, or just bring yourself to our Brown Bag Lunch Lecture Series once a month. Speakers will present topics of special interest for high desert residents. The lectures start at 12:00 p.m. Admission is $ 5 – Free for Members/Sponsors – beverages will be served.

  • Paolo Journey

    1:00 PM-3:00 PM

  • Galaxies and Globular Clusters

    8:00 PM-10:00 PM

    Sky’s The Limit Observatory and Nature Center invites stargazers to enjoy the desert night sky on Saturday, May 27. This free public event begins at 8:30 pm and ends around midnight. The Observatory is at 9697 Utah Trail in Twentynine Palms, just outside the main (north) entrance to Joshua Tree National Park.

    The spring sky is dominated by the Big Dipper, Leo, the bright orange star Arcturus, and the planet Jupiter.

    Some of the best examples of galaxies and globular clusters are visible this time of year. The Black-eye and Whirlpool galaxies are bright spirals with uneven texture, and the globular clusters Omega Centauri and M13 in Hercules shine with thousands of stars.
    Prominent constellations are Libra (the Scales). Corvus (the Crow), Virgo (the Maiden), Leo (the Lion), Boötes (the Herdsman), and Ursa Major (the Great Bear.)
    Volunteers will set up a variety of kinds and sizes of telescopes on the winding sidewalks, and guests are welcome to use them or may bring their own binoculars and scopes as well. The presentation is very casual, so come at any time and leave when you wish. Bring a red flashlight to preserve night vision.

    The campus is always open, so arrive around sunset to allow time to visit other educational attractions before the cosmic tour begins at dark. Dress for unpredictable desert weather and bring snacks, water bottles, and chairs. Children under 16 must be accompanied by adults. No pets, no smoking or alcohol allowed on the STL campus, and visitors must carry out all trash.

    The seasonal sky is very unpredictable and a viewing event may have to be delayed, rescheduled, or cancelled due to cloudiness, rain, or excessive wind. Check Sky’s The Limit Facebook Page or follow @STL29Palms to learn the latest status of an event, or call Steve at (760) 401-3004.


    7:00 PM-9:00 PM

    Sky’s The Limit is offering an Astronomy Class on Wednesday, May 31 beginning at 7:15 pm. Participation is limited to adults, including College and High School students. Classes will be a minimum of 5 participants and a maximum of 10 in order to give personalized instruction. The cost is $20 per person.
    The class will begin with a walking tour of the Orrery – a model of the inner planets from Mercury to Mars at a scale of 20 billion to 1, followed by a PowerPoint presentation on the basics of astronomy.
    Hands-on instruction at the dome using different types of telescopes and binoculars will provide a personal tour of the night sky. The evening will conclude with observing through STL’s large 14 inch Celestron telescope. Observing will last as long as anyone is interested.
    Participants meet at the dome and should plan on about three hours. If you have a scope and would like help setting it up, bring it along. Bring binoculars if you have them, a red flashlight, a clipboard, water, and snacks. Dress for unpredictable desert weather. Participants will receive star charts for each month and a copy of Celestron’s brochure, How To Buy Your First Telescope.
    The same class will be repeated on June 28 and July 26.
    The Observatory is just outside the main (north) entrance to Joshua Tree National Park at 9697 Utah Trail in Twentynine Palms. To register or for more information contact Ray Yeager 760-365-7897 or
