The story of the Clark County Historical Museum on Tap is scheduled for season three
The Clark County Historical Museum’s History on Tap series returns for a third season, exploring how Clark County’s past influences our present and speculating on how it will shape our future.
The 2021 season opens with “Adaptation: The Open Secret of Humanity’s Origins, Global Diversity and Distant Future,” a YouTube presentation that airs live at 7pm on March 11. The speaker is author Cameron Smith, co-founder of Pacific space flight, a think tank dedicated to the expansion of space exploration technologies.
Smith’s research in the region, particularly around Cathlapotle and the Wapato Valley, broadened understanding of Indigenous communities before European contact, said April Buzby, program and marketing manager for the Clark County Historical Museum.
“Its application of these lessons to a future where humans look beyond Earth at home highlights how stories from our past can inform our future,” she said.
Snowy weather delayed this year’s first History on Tap event, but the series expands to six separate presentations this year, on the third Thursday in March, April, June, August, October, and December. The historic series remains extremely popular, even in its current format only online.
“Before the pandemic, History on Tap often filled the Kiggins,” Buzby said. “Even 100% virtual, we have an average of 50 to 60 views, and it’s a paid event. “
If the number of COVID-19 continues to decline, event planners hope to switch to a hybrid format, with simultaneous in-person and live presentations.
Tickets cost $ 10 for a virtual performance and include a 32-ounce can of beer, also known as a crowler, from Barlow’s Brewery. Tickets for all History on Tap events can be purchased online through the Kiggins Theater at www.kigginstheater.com or Clark County Historical Museum at cchmuseum.org. A private link will be sent to ticket holders prior to the show; the link serves as a voucher that participants can take to Barlows to collect their crowlers.
