Cocktails & Fishtales – The Urban Ocean

The Urban Ocean: Unseen connections between cities and seas
Dr. Eliza Heery – Assistant Professor of Ecology, UW Tacoma

Eliza is a marine ecologist researching ecological processes and community dynamics on urban artificial structures in coastal cities. She received her PhD from the University of Washington, MS from Virginia Tech, and BS from Emory University. Upon completion of her PhD she served as a postdoc at the National University of Singapore before moving to Smithsonian’s Marine GEO program. In December 2022, she joined the faculty of the University of Washington Tacoma as an Assistant Professor in Ecology.

For those attending in person, the doors open at 5:30pm and the presentation will begin at 6pm. Please purchase your beverages in the Cocktails & Fishtales event space rather than at the bar so we can reach our drink minimum. If you’re planning on dinner, food must be consumed in the restaurant, so plan to eat either ahead of the event or after the presentation.
For those who can’t make it in person, we will plan to stream this in person presentation to the Harbor WildWatch Facebook page. To access Facebook Live events, simply search Harbor WildWatch on Facebook at the scheduled time (6pm for the presentation) to find the live feed on our page. The videos will always post in full once the live stream ends, so feel free to catch up with any content you miss by scrolling through our facebook page. These videos will also get posted to youtube. All times are posted as PST.

Cocktails & Fishtales are educational events. As such, Harbor WildWatch does not endorse any speaker, service, or product represented at Cocktails & Fishtales.
