Free Event Add to calendar

Join the College of Natural Resources and the Department of Fisheries, Wildlife and Conservation Biology as Drew Lanham, Alumni Distinguished Professor of Wildlife Ecology at Clemson University, discusses what it means to embrace the full breadth of his African American heritage and his deep kinship to nature and adoration of birds. Latham's lecture is titled "Coloring the Conservation Conversation." 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 — 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.

You can attend the lecture in person at Talley Student Union in the Mountains Ballroom or watch via livestream. More information about the livestream will be available in September.
