Westborough Community Land Trust presents talk on microscopic life
June 17 @ 7:00 pm
Westborough – Invisible Worlds, a free talk on microscopic life with speaker Scott Chimileski, will be presented by the Westborough Community Land Trust Monday, June 17 at St. Luke’s Parish Hall, 1 Ruggles St., Westborough. The program will run from 7-8 p.m., with the reception and Annual Meeting to follow.
When most people think of nature, they think of plants and animals they can see, but the overwhelming majority of life is visible only through a microscope. Microbes live everywhere, from under polar ice, to geothermal ocean vents, to your own back yard–one gram of soil can contain billions of living creatures.
Harvard Medical School-based microbiologist and science photographer Scott Chimileski will open the door for us to see into the secret lives of microscopic creatures: How they hunt, travel, and communicate. His beautiful photographs of microbe colonies will illustrate the talk.
