Pushing the Limits **new date** May 6

The final Pushing the Limits program has been rescheduled to Saturday, May 6 from 10:30-noon.

We will explore how humans push the limits of nature with Clive Cussler's book "Arctic Drift" and Sherilyn Smith, Professor of Biology at LeMoyne College. How do we survive? As humans, we’re driven to find a way to survive, whether trapped in a life threatening situation or competing in a sport. Our instincts urge us to push our limits to make it through, one way or another.

Participants receive a free copy of the book. Click here to register!
