Join the Coastal Discovery Museum, Hilton Head Audubon and Historic Mitchelville Freedom Park for an evening with Dr. J. Drew Lanham. A reception will be held at 5 p.m. in the Coligny Theatre with the presentation starting at 5:30 p.m.
Explore the convergence of conservation and culture with Dr. J. Drew Lanham at this special evening program and book signing. In this intimate evening, Dr. Lanham will reflect on his lifelong love of birds and wildlife and the part they play as connectors across time, place and cultures throughout our history. Dr. Lanham persuasively argues that conservation of wildlife can only be successful if it generates a deep appreciation for the cultural ties that link people of all backgrounds to the natural world and its power to unite.
A native of Edgefield, South Carolina, Lanham is the author of “The Home Place: Memoirs of a Colored Man’s Love Affair with Nature,” which received the Reed Award from the Southern Environmental Law Center and the Southern Book Prize and was a finalist for the John Burroughs Medal.
