Nature & The Environment: The Edwin Way Teale Lecture Series
About the Series
The Edwin Way Teale Lecture Series developed as a joint effort of a number of departments, out of discussions initiated in
1995 by faculty members and graduate students with common interests in the many facets of environmental issues. The Lecture
Series is designed to bring a variety of distinguished speakers to the University to speak on various aspects of nature and
The Teale Lecture Series received the Joshua's Trust Conservation Award in recognition of Outstanding Conservation Efforts in 2007.
All lectures are free, open to the public and held at 4:00 pm in the Konover Auditorium (with the exception of Thursday, February 7th, which will be a two-part program with a lecture at 4 and a film virewing at 7pm) at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center.
