Richard L. James Lecture

The Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education announces the unveiling of a new program, the annual Richard L. James Lecture, established in memory of founding executive director Dick James, the charismatic educator, writer and radio personality that led the organization from 1965 until his retirement in 1996.

The James lecture will annually bring leading environmental voices to the center to discuss cutting-edge environmental issues.

The inaugural lecture in the series will be presented March 8, 2012, by Doug Tallamy, PhD. Dr. Tallamy is professor of entomology at the University of Delaware and a celebrated speaker on the critical role that native plants play in preserving local biodiversity. 

His groundbreaking book, Bringing Nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants, has become the leading work on the subject.
