June 25 (Thursday) 10:00am – 11:30am, Online Presentation with J. Drew Lanham, Clemson University Alumni Distinguished Professor of Wildlife Biology: Many of the Emeritus faculty are familiar with Dr. Lanham’s book, the Home Place-Memoirs of a Colored Man’s Love Affair with Nature, which tells his story. This is an opportunity to learn more about the man, the professor, the researcher. Dr. Lanham is an expert on birding in South Carolina. As the parks and forest open for summer, Drew will highlight areas around Clemson where we might go to see different types of birds. From at the Botanical Gardens to the Bottoms, to the experimental forest to easy walks around our neighborhoods identifying birds is a wonderful link to nature. Drew seeks to translate conservation science to make it relevant to others in ways that are evocative and understandable. As a Black American he's intrigued with how culture and ethnic prisms can bend perceptions of nature and its care. His 'connecting the conservation dots' and 'coloring the conservation conversation' messages have been delivered internationally. Drew strongly believes that conservation must be a blending of head and heart; rigorous science and evocative art.
