Draper Natural History Museum Lectures
Lunchtime Expeditions Lectures
Our Lunchtime Expedition series runs from February through December, the first Thursday of the month. These free lectures explore a variety of natural history subjects and issues and take place in our Coe Auditorium at 12:15 p.m. Lunchtime Expeditions are supported in part by Sage Creek Ranch and the Nancy-Carroll Draper Foundation. Please note, many of these lectures have been or will be rescheduled or shifted to online presentations. These changes are posted here just as soon as we have details finalized. Find videos of past presentations on our YouTube channel.

Draper After Dark Lectures
This series, also generously supported in part by Sage Creek Ranch and the Nancy-Carroll Draper Foundation, usually takes place once a month (exact date depends on speaker) June through August at 5:15 p.m. However, with the uncertainty of scheduling and the need to cancel or shift programs to online presentations this year, we have incorporated these lectures into our lunchtime series. Please see above…
