On Thursday, December 13, the world-renowned biologist (and ant guru), Dr. Edward O. Wilson, will be dropping by our neighborhood here in Raleigh, NC.

At 1pm EST in the Daily Planet Theater in the Nature Research Center at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences, Dr. Wilson will lead a Global Town Hall about biodiversity. He’ll share stunning photos and stories from his remarkable scientific career to inspire students — the next generation of scientists, explorers, and conservationists – to study, protect, and maintain the biodiversity of our planet.

Not local? No worries! The Global Town Hall will be streamed online at www.livestream.com/naturalsciences.

Following the presentation, Dr. Wilson will field questions from audience members on location as well as via Twitter at #EOWilson. Students and teachers can also submit questions in advance of the event at askeowilson@eowilsonfoundation.org .

We’re dying to know what Dr. Wilson thinks about biodiversity in some of the more curious places we like to study, like, um, say the belly button or the armpit?

We look forward to seeing you in person or online!
