What's a good resource to find free lectures within roughly 10-15 miles of Hazel Dell? Mostly weeknights but also some weekends. I randomly hear about some (Mazamas, etc) but am sure there are many I'm not aware of. Thanks!

I did some searching, and the best source I found was OMSI in Portland. There is an upcoming event about glaciers, for example. There are others, but not all of the events are in Portland.

The location for at least one of the events is at a McMenamins on Glisan. I doubt that is in NE though.

OMSI is in SE Portland on the river. We have taken our grands there numerous times, and it is a great resource for anyone interested in science. https://omsi.edu/calendar?keywords%5B%5D=345#

Also check what is available through the Fort Vancouver Regional Libraries. They do have events, such as book discussion groups. I don't know about lectures. But any library event will likely be free. All Events | Fort Vancouver Regional Library


Washington State and Clark College here in Van do not do community outreach apparently.

Add Camas / Multnomah Library to your search. (And 3 rivers museum, (Washougal) once it reopens)

Powell's as frequent presentations from 'authors' .

Many thanks to both of you for the great suggestions! I have neglected the libraries/universities as a source of interesting lectures.
