Science Pub

Science pub is a free event open to everyone, no scientific background required! Come to Bandon Brewing Company to learn and imbibe before this year's Gorse Blossom Festival so you too can be a "gorse is gross" expert. Grab a beer, some snacks, and a seat and prepare for an evening of pure science.

We're lucky to have Frank Burris, an Oregon State University extension agent working in our region as our speaker for this evening's talk. He will share his knowledge of the icky gorse plant, how it got here, why it's so dangerous to our community, and some tips for how to contain, and hopefully eradicate our nemesis in the future.

And, don't forget to join us at the Gorse Blossom Festival February 16-18th for seafood, beer, wine, music, and much, much more!
