March 1-31: Museum Month
In 2015, the Archons proclaimed March to be Museum Month in The Park. That means that all Park museums and galleries offer free admission throughout the month. Take advantage of this great opportunity to learn about our history and appreciate our rich culture by visiting The Park Museum, The Park Museum of Contemporary Art, The Ewe and Moo Gallery, The Tortoiseshell Gallery, The Kipos Gallery, The Knochen Kunst Gallery, Fusion Ceramics Studio, The Park Museum of Contemporary Art, the art gallery at the University of West Terrier, and the small museum at the Institute for the Study of Mammalian Life.
March 13: Closing date for the Otter Ice Slide
Yes, we’re all looking forward to Spring, but some of us just can’t shake that Winter feeling. If that describes you, get over to the Otter Ice Slide while the weather still permits. There’s no feeling like it, but that feeling won’t last past March 13.
March 16-18: UWT hosts three-day symposium on on Human Error
For the first time in its history, the University of West Terrier will host an academic event that focuses on Humans and Human behaviour. The multi-dimensional symposium will bring together researchers from all UWT schools and departments to discuss the aspects of Human behaviour that lead to error. Among the topics to be discussed are the effects on other Animals of Human Error (HE), how to determine when a problem has been caused by Human Error, how to mitigate the effects of Human Error in order to prevent disaster, and the rôle of technology in predicting and preventing Human Error. The symposium will include a discussion open to the public on March 19.
Noreen, adjunct professor of Human Studies, will chair the symposium.
March 24: Polar Bears’ Poetry Picnic
The Polar Bears’ Poetry Picnic is one of our most beloved seasonal and artistic events. Now in its twenty-fifth year, the Picnic has expanded to include haiku and rap, but the format of the day remains the same. Don’t forget to check the weather forecast so you know how to dress to avoid either frozen nose syndrome or soggy bottom.
March 29: The Park’s semi-annual “Shakeoff”
Formerly the “Shake for Charity,” this semi-annual event aids those who have no coat. The Shakeoff also offers free grooming and refreshments to participants.
“If you have a coat, share it with those who don’t.”
