There’s another Bigfoot talk that has popped up on the radar. It occurs Wednesday, July 26, 2006, in the Lake Oroville area of California. At the end here is the press information on the lecture, which appears to be taking a lead from the now popular "Legend Meets Science" moniker that is becoming overused in various places.
In other words, this talk is not to be confused with Jeff Meldrum’s September 2006 book (above), Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science, although the individual lecturing was involved with the Skookum cast investigations.
2006 Summer Speaker Series
Please join us for a very exciting Summer Speaker Series program on July 26 at 7 p.m., in the Lake Oroville Visitor Center Theater: "Bigfoot- Legend Meets Science"
Presented by Dr. Ron Brown
Dr. Ron Brown received his Doctorate in Zoology from East Africa, where he lived during the 1980s. He was the co-operator of a breeding facility for Native African animals in South Africa. Dr. Brown wrote his first paper on Bigfoot at U.C. Berkeley in 1972; a non-scientific critique of the 1967 Patterson Film and has been a contributing author for books on Bigfoot. He has participated in numerous field studies and investigations and is affiliated with the only academically qualified field investigatory team he’s aware of on Bigfoot.
Please join Dr. Brown for an extraordinary exploration of the legendary mystery creature that has inspired enthusiastic research by scientists, biologists, and outdoorsmen for the past three decades. Ron’s insightful lecture presentation will include videotape footage and an informational display of castings and visual representations. He encourages questions and information from the audience members.
Bring family and friends, a picnic dinner, and dine on the Visitor Center’s shaded patio before the program begins. The Visitor Center remains open after 5 p.m. on specified Summer Speaker Series Wednesday evenings only during the summer months.

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
