Curt Meine to headline bi-annual lecture program
Water is life.
It is vital to our landscape, our culture, and our economy.
From the Might Mississippi to the west, to the shores of Lake Michigan to the east, and all the surface and groundwater in between, water is our most precious resource.
Responsibly managing our water – how we use it, what we put into it – is critically important.
Come hear conservation biologist and author Curt Meine discuss water issues and the ethics surrounding water resource management at Clean Wisconsin’s semi-annual Doug La Follette Environmental Speakers Program.
Meine, a Senior Fellow at the Aldo Leopold Foundation, is the author of “Aldo Leopold: His Life and Work,” and edited the Library of America’s definitive collection, “Aldo Leopold: A Sand County Almanac and Other Essays on Ecology and Conservation” (2013). He also served as the on-screen guide in the Emmy Award-winning documentary film “Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time” (2011).
Meine coordinated the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts, & Letters’ first Waters of Wisconsin Initiative, and is now an advisor for the second iteration of WoW. He is also a founder and member of the Sauk Prairie Conservation Alliance in Sauk County.
The Doug La Follette Environmental Speakers Program is a semi-annual lecture series that brings distinguished environmental leaders to Wisconsin. Held in cities throughout Wisconsin, these events will feature environmental leaders who specialize in a wide range of issues affecting the state such as climate change, invasive species, renewable energy and Great Lakes protection.
