cordially invite you to attend the lecture:
and Sustaining Ourselves"
Trees as Providers and Inspiration for Our Lives
Forests all over the world provide resources sustaining
human, animal, and plant communities. They enrich our lives in countless
ways—ecologically, economically, and socially. One of the greatest
challenges of our new century is to ensure that forests thrive and continue to
nourish both the livelihoods and spirits of future generations.
Nadkarni, SFR alumna, faculty member at The Evergreen State College and
co-founder and president of the International Canopy Network, will share her
vision of how fostering deeper human relationships with trees and forests will
help us meet this challenge.
A 2010 recipient of
the first National Science Foundation Board Public Service Award, she brings
enthusiasm and creativity in her quest to engage people as partner catalysts in
understanding forests and their meaning in our lives.
The lecture is the first in a series of programs celebrating 2011 as the United
Nations-declared “International Year of Forests,” and is sponsored by the
Lockwood Endowment for Program Enhancement in the School of Forest Resources.
