Paul L Sieswerda is giving a talk about whales tonight at the National Lighthouse Museum on Staten Island. Sorry for the late notice! I'd hoped to go but can't make it because of work, but I thought I would share here.
Special bonus activity if you go by public transportation - riding the Staten Island Ferry through the harbor ice to get there! Cool!
