Science at Sunset: Using weather radar to track migration flights


Location: Morrison Family Pavilion at St. Patrick's Park, South Bend

The University of Notre Dame’s Linked Experimental Ecosystem Facility (ND-LEEF) will host an event in its “Science at Sunset” series, featuring a presentation by Phil Stepania, research assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering and earth sciences, titled, “Cloudy with a chance of migration: Using weather radar to track the incredible flights of birds, bats and bugs.”

The event will take place at the Morrison Family Pavilion within St. Patrick’s County Park located on Laurel Road in South Bend.

ND-LEEF will provide snacks for the free program, and attendees are welcome to bring their own beverages, including beer and wine. Other alcoholic drinks and glass containers are prohibited; all beverages must be brought in plastic or metal containers. Although the County Parks and ND-LEEF partner on many science-related programs, the “Science at Sunset” series is distinctive in that it is designed for adults.

The program is free, but registration is required by calling the County Parks’ program reservation line by Monday (June 10) at 574-654-3155. To learn more, visit
