Join us for a live conversation with Scott V. Edwards, Professor in Harvard’s Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology and Curator of Ornithology in Harvard’s Museum of Comparative Zoology. Since June 6, Professor Edwards has been pedaling across the United States to fulfill a long-held wish to traverse the country on a bicycle, and to also raise awareness for #BlackBirdersWeek and Black Lives Matter. In this program, he discusses the motivations for his journey, what he has learned along the way, and the similarities between cycling and doing science.
