Nerd Nite is a quirky interdisciplinary presentation series where almost any topic might be discussed. This month, Hemker Zoo is bringing out the animals for a presentation on fur, feathers, and other animal coverings that make each creature unique. And Milk & Honey Ciders will give us a taste of the methods used to create their spectacular hard apple ciders. You get to eat out and have drinks with your friends while our speakers get to “nerd out” on their favorite topic. This special event is going to be lots of fun and you’re guaranteed to learn something new!

Joan Hemker & Jacqueline Poepping present a wild ride through the animal kingdom, where fur, feathers, and everything in-between come together in a fantastic fusion of fluff and finesse! From the sleek fur of prowling predators to the soft feathers of soaring birds, we’re exploring the diverse coverings that make each creature unique.
