Virtual Annual Evelyn McNeill Sims Native Plant Lecture
Coloring the Conservation Conversation

Sunday, April 11, 2021
2:30 PM-4:00 PM
Venue: Zoom webinar
Free; preregistration required
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 — 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 will be offered via Zoom Webinar. Links for accessing the program will be emailed to participants in the days leading up to the lecture.
