cordially invite you to attend the lecture:

"Sustaining Forests and Sustaining Ourselves"
Trees as Providers and Inspiration for Our Lives

Nalini NadkarniForests 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.

Professor Nalini 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.
