The popularity of this year’s Lower Columbia College lecture series on health-related topics has prompted a change of venue for the rest of the quarter.
The remaining seven presentations will be held in the Wollenberg Auditorium instead of Main 119. Lectures in the series have been almost full and some instructors plan to bring students to the remaining talks, Charlotte Persons, LCC instructor of languages and literature, said Monday.
All lectures will be at the same time — from noon to 1 p.m. each Thursday through March 13. Food and drink are prohibited in Wollenberg Auditorium. The lectures are free and open to the public.
Here are the remaining lectures:
Jan. 30: “School Gardens: Real Food, Real Life Lessons,” Ian Thompson, director, Lower Columbia School Gardens
