The Global Enviroment Speaker Series and the VCU Center for Environmental Studies welcome Dr. Gary Machlis, professor of environmental sustainability at Clemson University. 

Machlis will discuss his new book, The Future of Conservation in America: A Chart for Rough Water. From the current assaults on environmental protection to the threats of climate change, biodiversity loss, and disparity of environmental justice, the challenges facing the conservation movement are both immediate and long term. In this time of uncertainty, we need a clear and compelling guide for the future of conservation in America; a declaration to inspire the next generation of conservation leaders. This is that guide.

A reception with presentations of student research will take place after the lecture.

Please note this event takes place at Virginia Commonwealth University.
