Public Lecture 9/24

Dale L. Travis Lecture
Dr. Robin Kimmerer

The Honorable Harvest: Indigenous Knowledge and Conservation

Wednesday, September 24, 2014, 7:30 pm, Gateway Center

Please join us as Dr. Robin Kimmerer, Distinguished Teaching Professor at SUNY ESF, delivers the fourth Dale L. Travis Lecture. 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the extinction of the passenger pigeon, and Dr. Kimmerer will share insights from indigenous environmental ethics about species conservation during her talk.

A reception will follow the lecture. In addition, Dr. Kimmerer will sign copies of her books after the talk. Her books will be sold from 6:00 to 7:15 p.m. at the ESF Bookstore in the Gateway Center prior to her talk, and for an hour after her talk.

Admission to the lecture and reception is free. Parking will be available on campus.

Dr. Kimmerer is a mother, scientist, decorated professor, and enrolled member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation. She founded and currently directs the ESF Center for Native Peoples and the Environment. She is also the author of two award winning books. Her first book, Gathering Moss, was selected for the John Burroughs Medal for outstanding nature writing in 2005. Braiding Sweetgrass (2013), her most recent work, won the Sigurd Olson Nature Writing Award. In addition, Dr. Kimmerer recently won the 2013 John Burroughs Nature Essay Award for "Council of the Pecans," published by Orion magazine in its September/October 2013 issue. Her other writings have appeared in Orion, Whole Terrain, and numerous scientific journals.

The Roosevelt Wild Life Station is a historic research center within SUNY ESF Department of Environmental and Forest Biology (EFB). Today's mission of the Roosevelt Wild Life Station (RWLS) is to deliver the science and trained professionals to preserve our wildlife heritage and save imperiled species worldwide.

Over the last 10 years EFB/RWLS has attracted about $2.6 million annually in conservation research: funds earned are apportioned among fish and wildlife (31%), ecosystems (27%), plants (18%), and invertebrates (8%). RWLS proudly supports the "limitless" conservation work envisioned when the station was founded in 1919.

"The establishment of the Roosevelt Wild Life Forest Experiment Station marks the first active step in a movement… likely to go far in the United States… The work of the Roosevelt Station will thus consist of experiment, investigation, and general research into the wild life which occupies millions of acres of land and water…the work that such an experiment station may do is almost limitless, and its possibilities are as yet quite beyond the range of our imagination." Editorial published in Forest and Stream magazine, August 1919, Volume 89, p 409
