Plymouth State University and the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center (SLNSC) will host a lecture and book signing with Russell E. Train, Tuesday, July 20 at 6:30 p.m. in Boyd Hall Auditorium (Rm. 144).

The cost of the presentation is $10 to the general public and $7.50 to SLNSC members and PSU students and staff.

Train is author of Politics, Pollution and Pandas: An Environmental Memoir. He is an “environmental statesman” whose half century of accomplishments and leadership have profoundly shaped the field of worldwide conservation. In his roles as the former head of the Council of Environmental Quality, administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency and co-founder, president and chair of the World Wildlife Fund, Train has been a tireless advocate for the environment and a pioneering architect of many of the laws and regulations that now protect it.

Commenting on Train’s latest book Walter Cronkite wrote, “This is an adventure story—not among the wild animals he knows so well but among the politicians, as he pioneered the efforts to conserve our wildlife, our natural resources, and the very atmosphere that supports us all. it is a history invaluable to those interested in the preservation of our environment; a matterin which we all should be concerned and involved.”
