Sustainability Speaker Series

This semester, the Lake Erie College Sustainability Committee (LECSC) will present its second free, public Speaker Series, featuring three nature experts from government agencies and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. Each lecture will take place in the Austin Hall of Science’s Dickinson Lecture Hall at 7:00 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month, Feb., March, and Apr. 2018.

The series begins on Feb. 6, when attendees will hear from Conservation Project Manager George Warnock of the Western Reserve Land Conservancy. He will present “The Grand River: In a Class of Its Own.”

On March 6, Matthew Smith, regional manager of Ohio scenic rivers at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, will speak about “Northeast Ohio Scenic Rivers.”

The series’ final speaker, Jim Bissell, is the director of natural areas at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. Taking place on Apr. 3, his lecture is titled “Thirty Years of Change… The Lake Erie Wetlands Landscape.”

No registration is required.
