J. Drew Lanham is the author of The Home Place: Memoirs of a Colored Man’s Love Affair with Nature, which received the Reed Award from the Southern Environmental Law Center and the Southern Book Prize, and was a finalist for the John Burroughs Medal. He is a birder, naturalist, hunter-conservationist, essayist, and poet.

Join Drew Lanham in an examination of how conservation must be a rigorous science and evocative art, and inviting diversity and race to play active roles in celebrating our natural world.

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.
  • How 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.
