Explore the convergence of conservation and culture with Dr. J. Drew Lanham at a special evening program and book signing as a part of the 2020 Virginia Environmental Education Conference on February 27th at the Chapel on the campus of Sweet Briar College.
In this intimate evening, Dr. Lanham will reflect on his lifelong love of birds and wildlife and the part they play as connectors across time, place and cultures throughout our history. Dr. Lanham persuasively argues that conservation of wildlife can only be successful if it generates a deep appreciation for the cultural ties that link people of all backgrounds to the natural world and its power to unite.
Dr. Lanham is the author of The Home Place: Memoirs of a Colored Man's Love Affair with Nature, which received the Reed Award from the Southern Environmental Law Center and the Southern Book Prize and was a finalist for the John Burroughs Medal.
Tickets are available to the General Public for $25.00 and for area students at a discounted rate of $10.00. Tickets for Dr. Lanham's talk are included in Full Conference or Day 2 Registration for the 2020 Conference.
