KINDLE A SPIRIT OF COMMUNITY THROUGH KNOWLEDGE. When we gather together in a circle under dim light, there is something special about the way the warmth of the fire comforts us and puts us at ease enough to share thoughts and to listen just as intently. We hope this lecture series will invoke similar feelings, awaken new ideas, kindle a spirit of community through knowledge, and foster an ongoing conversation about important issues.
You are invited to the inaugural lecture to help launch the new Warner Distinguished Lecture Series.
Kindle a conversation with Dr. Robin Kimmerer. She is a renowned ecologist, author, and University Distinguished Teaching Professor at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry. Based on her life experiences and research, she will be sharing her perspectives and understanding of the linkages between indigenous knowledge and philosophy, conservation of biodiversity, and ecological restoration. Dr. Kimmerer is an outstanding speaker and provocative thinker… this will be an evening that you do not want to miss.
