The Danforth Plant Science Center’s primary concern is and will always be the safety of our community, colleagues and guests.  In light of recent COVID-19 developments in the St. Louis region, the Danforth Center has cancelled all external events through April including Venture Cafe Night@39N. We are taking this step out of caution at a time of uncertainty about the extent of COVID-19 spread in the St. Louis region.

Instead of on-site meetings, Venture Cafe @ 39 North gatherings have gone virtual!  We are partnering with the global Venture Cafe community on virtual gatherings every Thursday.
