Science Under the Stars!

Science Under the Stars presents Nathan LeClear 

Photosynthesis: Past, Present, and Future

Have you hugged a tree today?  Thanked a pond full of algae?

Plants are responsible for the oxygen in the air we breathe, they form the basis of the food web in both terrestrial and aquatic environments, and are the sources of many of our fabrics, materials, and medicines. How can plants do so many marvelous things?  Photosynthesis!

Come hear the story of the reaction that has shaped the face of the planet, dictated the path of evolution for life on Earth, and is key for our future.
