Lynn W. Day Distinguished Lectureship in Forest and Conservation History
The Lynn W. Day Distinguished Lectureship in Forest and Conservation History is a collaborative effort between the Forest History Society, Duke University's Nicholas School of the Environment, and Duke University's Department of History. Speakers are recognized scholars or leaders in natural resources who are shaping our understanding of human history and environmental change. In addition to offering serious scholarship, the lectureships will be accessible to a broad audience on unique and provocative topics and philosophies. The lectureship is supported by the Society's Lynn W. Day Endowment for Publications in Forest History, which was augmented with funds from a challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
