Please join us for the 2018 Carlson Lecture featuring William Weeks. The lecture will begin with a presentation by Mr. Weeks and will be followed with a Q&A session.

Mr. William Weeks is the Glenn and Donna Scolnik Clinical Chair at the Indiana University Mauer School of Law and the Director of the Conservation Law Clinic. He has represented hundreds of clients in natural resource conservation matters, both in Indiana and the District of Columbia. Between 1988 and 2002, Weeks worked to conserve biodiversity and natural areas as Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President of The Nature Conservancy. He is the author of the book Beyond the Ark: Tools for an Ecosystem Approach to Conservation, and the co-author of a 2017 policy white paper: “Water and Quality of Life in Indiana.” He has served on the Sycamore Land Trust advisory board, and served as the chair of the Indiana Sustainable Natural Resources Task Force in 2011 and 2012.

The Carlson Lecture is held in honor of environmentalist Reynold E. Carlson, who supervised the development of Indiana University’s leadership in outdoor recreation education in the 1970’s, helped found the National Association for Interpretation, and established Indiana University’s own program at Bradford Woods Outdoor Education Center. Perhaps no one else has so significantly touched the lives of faculty, staff and students in the field of parks and recreation during his era, he was recognized as a dynamic leader in the areas of outdoor recreation/education, conservation, and organized camping, and a beloved figure at Indiana University. The Reynold E. Carlson Lecture is free and open to faculty, staff, and students in the School of Public Health-Bloomington, campus colleagues, and the general public. Inquiries about the Reynold E. Carlson Lecture may be directed to melipage@indiana.edu.
