Throughout the Northwest, people have been reporting encounters with the Sasquatch—a hairy, eight- to ten-foot-tall hominid—for hundreds of years. Yet aside from a collection of large footprint casts and a sizable assemblage of eyewitness accounts, no scientifically accepted evidence of its existence has been offered.
Author David George Gordon evaluates the gathered data about the
legendary Northwest icon, discusses the rules of critical thinking and the workings of the scientific method, and explains how one can become an effective “citizen scientist”. Attendees are encouraged to tell their tales and share their experiences with this mysterious creature.
David George Gordon is the author of The Sasquatch Seeker’s Field
Manual: Using Citizen Science to Uncover North America’s Most
Elusive Creature. An accomplished science communicator, he has spoken at the American Museum of Natural History, The Philadelphia Academy of Sciences, and the Smithsonian Institution among others.
