Gary Snyder—Beat poet, conservationist and scholar—will speak on Wednesday, August 24, to kick off the 2016 Fall Lecture Series. In his free lecture "Scholars, Hermits and People of the Land", he will explore the concept of “bioregionalism” through the literary works of Daoist and Buddhist hermits and other peoples of the land, and how that perspective relates to the mission of Cornell Plantations. This event is free and no registration is required.

The lecture will be followed by a complimentary garden party in the Botanic Garden, celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Harder Family Lecture.

Date/time: Wednesday, August 24; 5:30 p.m.
