Conservation You Can Taste: An evening with Gary NabhanShow details
Join us to welcome Gary Nabhan to UW for a lecture centered on the re-emerging importance of ethnobiology as a way to spur biological and conservation and cultural survival in the Anthropocene.
Gary's full visit is sponsored by UW Program on the Environment, UW Geography, UW Quaternary Research Center, UW Anthropology, UW Farm, Nisqually Tribe, and Grub.
Gary is a renowned nature writer, agrarian activist and ethnobiologist whose work emphasizes the important links and synergies between biodiversity and cultural diversity. Gary’s work focuses on the plants and cultures of the desert and he’s also known as a pioneer in the local food movement for his work on bringing food diversity back to cities, in part by celebrating traditional ecological knowledge.
Through his work, Gary has brought together farmers, urban food activists and indigenous communities to conserve landscapes and traditional livelihoods.
