Think sustainable this Spring at FLC

Think sustainable this Spring at FLC

The community is invited to attend two sustainability lectures this February at Folsom Lake College. Dr. Eldridge Moores will speak on Wednesday, February 27 from 7-9pm at the El Dorado Center in Placerville and Dr. Steven E. Schwarzbach will present on Thursday, February 28 from 7-9pm at the main Folsom campus.

Eldridge Moores, PhD is a distinguished Professor Emeritus of Geology at UC Davis. Most people recognize the name Eldridge Moores from the book Assembling California, a treatise of California geology by award winning author John Mcphee; Dr. Moores was his personal guide. His fascinating career spans the entire timeline of Plate Tectonics Theory. Dr. Eldridge Moores will discuss how the decisions we make on critical issues such as climate change, energy resources, and water will determine the sustainability of human societies. Please join Dr. Moores for "Living with Revolutions" on Wednesday, February 27 from 7-9pm at the El Dorado Center in the Community Room (room C-102).

Steven E. Schwarzbach, PhD is the Director of the Western Ecological Research Center - US Geological Survey. Dr. Schwarzbach will look at his own career, a career that has taken him to 21 countries, and the conservation movement through the lens of environmental changes over the past 40 years. The environmental movement has rapidly grown in the last century and a half. The emphasis on the preservation of beautiful vistas and providing the greatest good for the greatest number of people and abundant natural resources has changed dramatically over time, which Dr.  Schwarzbach will describe in detail. Please join Dr. Schwarzbach for "Shifting Paradigms for both an Environmental Scientist's Career and the Conservation Movement" on Thursday, February 28 from 7-9pm at the main Folsom campus in the Community Room (Aspen Hall room FL1-20).

Admission to both events is free (a daily parking pass can be purchased for $1). Maps to the campuses can be found here.

The events are hosted by Biology Professor Mike Denega and the El Dorado County Career Technical Partnership SB70 Sustainability Team. For more information on this event, please email mdenega@comcast.net.
