Can Species Conservation and Urban Development Co-exist?
Thursday, Oct. 6th at Noon, University Club. $15 ($10 students), RESERVATIONS REQUIRED.

As part of The Liberal Studies Project's monthly "Meet The Professor" lunch & lecture series, Biology professor Margaret Carreiro invites you to consider if conservation and development can co-exist. Can they be reconciled so we can save and enjoy more of our local biological heritage in our neighborhoods? As species around the world go extinct at unprecedented rates, many of us feel powerless to contribute directly to solutions because we think “real” Nature can only be sustained in parks and reserves. But, believe it or not, by creating more thoughtful species-friendly habitat, people in cities and suburbs can weave local Nature into the very places where we live and work. Admission includes lunch and is $15/person ($10 for students) in cash or check. Reservations are required at least 3 days prior to the event. Please contact Janna Tajibaeva at 852-2247 or janna@louisville.edu.
