Today's picks for civic nerds
Science On Tap
Northwest Fisheries Science Center (NWFSC) research toxicologist John Incardona will be at Third Place Pub in Ravenna Monday evening to talk about coal dust. The powdered form of coal invades environments both on land and at sea, causing serious health problems in humans and fish alike.
Dr. Incardona has an MD and a PhD in genetics from Case Western Reserve University, and has been studying the effects of pollution on fish with NWFSC for more than a decade.
Science on Tap, Mon, June 30, 7pm, Third Place Pub, 6504 20th Avenue NE, free.
National Forests Committee Meeting
Washington state has some of the most beautiful forests in the country, but they won't stay that way without some volunteer muscle.
Join the Sierra Club at their Washington chapter office next Wednesday to learn more about the state's national forests, trails, and other roadless areas, and find out both what help is needed and how to make yourself useful.
National Forests Committee Meeting, Wed, July 2, 7pm, Sierra Club Washington State Chapter Office, 180 Nickerson Street, Suite 202, free.

July's edition of Transportation Choices Coalition's Friday Forum will focus on Seattle's Comprehensive Master Plan, with input from Futurewise executive director Hilary Franz, King County Equity and Social Justice manager Matias Valenzuela, and a surprise representative from the Seattle Department of Planning.

Join the discussion next Friday to find out what alternatives already exist and possibly help sculpt Seattle's best future.
