Dr. Lanham is going to continue his lecture on coloring the conservation conversation at Francis Beidler Forest. This is an ongoing conversation that he started at the Charleston Museum on December 8th with the help of the Charleston Audubon Society, Audubon South Carolina Society, and the Center for Heirs Property Preservation.

Dr. Drew Lanham is a native of Edgefield and Aiken, South Carolina. In his twenty years as Clemson University faculty he’s worked to understand how forest management impacts wildlife and how human beings think about nature. In his teaching, research, and outreach roles, Drew seeks to translate conservation science to make it relevant to others in ways that are evocative and understandable. As a Black American he’s intrigued with how culture and ethnic prisms can bend perceptions of nature and its care. His new book, "The Home Place: Memoirs of a Colored Man’s Love Affair with Nature," came out this fall.
