Sound Conversations with Jeff Renner is the Seattle Aquarium’s annual speaker series. Based on a talk-show format rather than a typical lecture format, Sound Conversations includes interactivity with the audience throughout the evening, rather than just at the end.

The third and final 2010 Sound Conversations will feature Dr. Rick Keil from the University of Washington who will speak about Spicing Up the Waterways of Puget Sound. Dr. Keil and his team of undergraduate researchers formed the nonprofit program SoundCitizen in late 2008 to help bring citizens into active research on the connections between urban watersheds and Puget Sound. Dr. Keil will discuss how by tracking cooking spices and emerging pollutants from households to Puget Sound, we can better understand how our daily lives and activities affect our local waterways.
