Tectonic Plates announces its spring 2023 schedule.

What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than learning about mating signals at Tectonic Plates. Jess Merricks, assistant professor of biology at Elon University will teach the “love languages” used by frogs and other animals this Tuesday, Feb. 14, 7 p.m. on the second floor of Burlington Beer Works located at 103 E Front St, Burlington.

As with all Tectonic Plates events, there is no entry fee and event goers can expect a lively event in a relaxed atmosphere without all the technical jargon. Tectonic Plates meets every second Tuesday from September through May.
