Columbia Gorge Discovery Center presents “Sasquatch Signs and Symbols,” with Paul Graves, Feb. 22 at 5:30 p.m. The evening event at the Discovery Center begins with a taco bar dinner at 5:30 p.m. and the presentation at 6:30.
Graves, from Wenatchee, Wash., is an avid outdoorsman and has been a Sasquatch researcher since 1988. He grew up in the eastern Washington Cascade Mountains, in an area with a rich history of Bigfoot sightings.
Graves has collected a large amount of evidence that supports the existence of the Sasquatch, including hundreds of eyewitness accounts, track casts, photographs, and audio recordings. He has personally had two brief sightings.
He has worked with scientists, wildlife biologists, and other Sasquatch researchers while investigating this phenomenon, as well as conducting field research on his own.
Graves uses innovative ways to collect Sasquatch evidence. One technique is to “record backwards behind him” to see what may be trailing him. He is a lifelong musician with a recording studio, and he uses this technology to conduct research into Sasquatch communication through wildlife audio recordings. He performs spectrographic analysis on his field recordings to look for a “voice print” or frequency range. This allows him to compare the recordings with other known animals.
Cost for the dinner and presentation is $25 for adults, $12.50 for children. Members receive a discount. Seating is limited and reservations are required before Feb. 19 by calling 541-296-8600, ext. 201.
The Columbia Gorge Discovery Center is located off I-84 at exit 82, 5000 Discovery Drive, The Dalles. For more information visit gorgediscovery.org.
