Next Science Café to focus on local ecosystem

With more than three decades of experience in conservation, Lane Green knows the South Georgia and North Florida ecosystem. On Tuesday, Feb. 27, he’ll share that knowledge when he presents “Our Unique Ecosystem” as part of TU’s Science Café series.

Green has served as executive director of the Tallahassee Junior Museum, director of the Red Hills Conservation Association and as executive director of Tall Timbers Research Center. Now Green is an adjunct professor of wildlife and forestry at Southern Regional Technical College in Thomasville.

His career has focused on protecting wildlife and conserving their habitat. For his efforts, Green has received several awards, including the National Sons and Daughters of the American Revolution’s National Conservation Award in 2017; the National Bobwhite Conservation Initiative’s National Fire Bird Conservation Award in 2015, and the Herbert Stoddard Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Association for Fire Ecology in 2013.

Green served a seven-year term on the Florida Acquisition and Restoration Council, which recommends conservation land purchases to the governor and cabinet. He coordinated the 13 Southern states’ “One Message Many Voices” prescribed fire messaging program, which began in 2009 and continues today.

Each Science Café begins with a reception with the speaker in the lobby of Smith-Bonvillian Hall on TU’s Forbes Campus at 6 p.m. followed by the presentation at 6:30 p.m. in the Flowers Foods Executive Classroom. There is no admission charge, and the public is welcome.
