Coloring the Conservation Conversation

J. Drew Lanham, Ph.D.an evening with J. Drew Lanham

Tuesday, Oct 19 | 7:00 p.m.
Pellegrene Auditorium, SJU
masks required

Approved ARTE and CSD: Race/Ethnicity Event

Dr. Lanham will discuss what it means to embrace the full breadth of his African-American heritage and his deep kinship to nature and adoration of birds. The convergence of ornithologist, college professor, poet, author and conservation activist blend to bring our awareness of the natural world and our moral responsibility for it forward in new ways. Candid by nature — and because of it — Dr. Lanham will examine how conservation must be a rigorous science and evocative art, inviting diversity and race to play active roles in celebrating our natural world.
