Bill Jordan, the person who coined the term “restoration ecology” and one of the founders of the modern discipline of restoration, will give a free public talk as part of the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden’s Thought Leader Series.
He will speak on “The Science and Art of Saving the Planet” from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 2, in the AGR Room at the Buehler Alumni & Visitors Center at UCD.
Guests will learn how communities can integrate environmental restoration practices into everyday life. A question-and-answer period, as well as a signing event featuring Jordan’s books, “Making Nature Whole” and “The Sunflower Forest,” will follow this talk.
The event is free. Parking is available with the purchase of an $8 visitor permit in the nearby Gateway District Parking Lot.
