Invitation to Online Lecture—Cornell Botanic Gardens "2020 Vision: A Black Walden Pond & Other Musings"

@Sandy forwarded this lecture announcement and I thought local runners might be interested in attending.

Join us for an online lecture by Carolyn Finney PhD, author of “Black Faces White Spaces: Reimagining the Relationship of African Americans to the Great Outdoors,” about her nationally recognized work to increase awareness of how privilege shapes who gets to inform and determine policy and action on environmental issues. The lecture will be delivered virtually on Thursday, February 25, 2021, at 6 p.m. It is free and open to the public on Zoom; pre-registration required.

Dr. Finney will deliver Cornell Botanic Gardens’ Class of 1945 lecture “2020 Vision: A Black Walden Pond & Other Musings" in partnership with Ithaca Children’s Garden, The Learning Farm, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service-New York Field Office, and the Finger Lakes Land Trust.
