Announcing a New Program Series on Community Resilience

Everyone has a story to tell about their experience of a natural or human-made disaster. Why do some communities bounce back and others do not? How can we prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters?
 
The Koshland Science Museum will launch a new Science Social program with three events in fall 2013 focused on community resilience.
 
Wednesday, October 9, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Is Community Resilience Real or Fiction?
