DFO's monthly program on Nov 23 at 7 PM features Dr. Drew Lanham, professor of wildlife ecology at Clemson University and author of The Home Place: Memoirs of a Colored Man's Love Affair with Nature. Register in Zoom to reserve your spot.
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, authro 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. This program is free and open to all!
Books can be ordered from The Book Bar in Denver. The CU Museum of Natural History is the promotional partner.
