Sasquatch: Man-Ape or Myth? @ Lacey Timberland Library
Nov 4 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Sasquatch: Man-Ape or Myth? @ Lacey Timberland Library | Lacey | Washington | United States

Throughout the Northwest, people have been reporting encounters with the Sasquatch— a hairy, eight to ten-foot-tall hominid —for hundreds of years. Yet no scientifically accepted evidence has been offered to establish this being’s existence.

Author David George Gordon evaluates the data gathered 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” by gathering credible evidence that can be used to substantiate the Sasquatch’s status as either Man-Ape or Myth.

He is the author of “The Sasquatch Seeker’s Field Manual: Using Citizen Science to Uncover North America’s Most Elusive Creature“.  Read more about the author here.
