Five Must-Attend Lectures in March

Home to a bevy of brainiacs, the Phoenix Metro area is rife with super smarties who are constantly sharing their findings -- running the geeky gambit from microbiology and art history to unsolved mysteries and urban planning.

For those jonesing to ramp up their IQs, here are five must-attend lectures hosted by said scholars in March.

5. Solving the Chupacabra Mystery
Phoenix Area Skeptics Society presents this investigative presentation on one of the Southwest's most fabled creatures: the Chupacabra.

Author Ben Radford presents his findings (the result of five years of research) on the bloodsucker, including how he unraveled the mystery.

Learn about the creepy cryptid at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 9, at Chandler's Windmill Suites. Admission is $5. See more here.
