Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery

Sponsored by the Department of English. Co-sponsored by the Departments of Geography and Environmental Systems, Biology and Public Policy; the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences; and the Dresher Center for the Humanities.

Tom Horton (pictured) and Dave Harp, two of the nation’s best known environmental journalists, will speak on the state of the Chesapeake Bay, the country’s largest estuarine system, the drainage basin of which touches six states. Horton is the author of the critically-acclaimed Bay Country, which won the John Burroughs Award for the best book of nature writing in 1988, as well as the David Brower award from the Sierra Club. Harp’s magazine work has taken him from the coast of Normandy for a story on the 40th anniversary of D-Day, to western Australia for coverage of the America’s Cup, and to the tropical rain forests of Panama.

Admission to this event is free.
