Garth Lenz – Environmental Photojournalist TODAY 5pm!
There is an awesome opportunity to see a talk by Garth Lenz TODAY, Tuesday, Jan 15th at 5:10pm.
Garth Lenz <http://www.garthlenz.com> is a photojournalist who has recently documented the changes taking place in the Alberta Tar Sands of the boreal forests of Canada. He has given a TED talk <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84zIj_EdQdM> on these issues and his work, and will be visiting UC Davis to share a slideshow of his photos and talk to us about this important environmental issue. It is a pertinent topic, as the country moves toward a final decision about the XL pipeline which would drive the expansion of the mining operations in the Tar Sands. And hearing this story from a world-renown photojournalist like Garth is truly a unique opportunity.
His talk is being sponsored by the Society for Conservation Biology, Davis and the Geology Students. It is titled “The True Cost of Oil: Images of Beauty and Devastation”
Join us on TODAY, Jan 15th at 5pm in 2 Wellman Hall to see his presentation. Free admission to students and the public.
Please bring your own coffee cup if you can!
