Russell Library to Host Panel Discussion on Endangered Species Act

August 27, 2013 – 11:56 AM

Inspired by the 40th anniversary of the passage of the Endangered Species Act, the Russell Library for Political Research and Studies will host a panel discussion  on Wednesday, October 16 from 5:30-7:00 PM in the auditorium (room 271) of the Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries. The discussion will help attendees engage with the legacy of this landmark piece of environmental legislation and consider both its impact and relevance 40 years later.

Featured panelists will include faculty members drawn from colleges across the UGA campus. They include Brian Drake (History Department), Laurie Fowler (Odum School of Ecology), Michael Mengak (Warnell School of Forestry), and Terrance Centner (College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences).

This event is one in a series of three titled “It Was a Big Year” to be hosted by the Russell Library this October, all inspired by the ongoing exhibit Now and Then: 1973 currently on display in the Library Gallery.
