NMU hosts conservation and sustainability speaker

The public crowded into Mead Auditorium on Northern Michigan University’s campus to listen about conservation and local sustainability.  The program was sponsored by NMU’s Earth, Environmental and Geographical Sciences Department.

The featured speaker was Curt Meine, who discussed connecting conservation efforts across various landscapes.  He discussed the philosophy of conservationist Aldo Leopold.

The EEGS Department is also hosting a forum and documentary screening about Aldo Leopold called “Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic of Our Time” on Friday morning.

The forum is designed to give the public a chance to start talking about sustainability at the local level.  The forum and documentary will be held in Mead Auditorium.  The documentary screening and forum are free, and open to the public.
