NABHAN

National Pollinator Week is a time to celebrate pollinators and spread the word about what you can do to protect them. Seattle’s 2016 Pollinator Week keynote address, by Gary Paul Nabhan, Ph.D. (Ethnobiology for the Future, The Forgotten Pollinators), offers a broad-ranging and visionary perspective on bringing food biodiversity back into the city. Agricultural historian Peter Hatch of Monticello has called Nabhan “the lyrical jourdan keith by Chris Crismanscholar of genetic diversity.” He has been been named as a pioneer and creative force in the “local food movement” and seed saving community by Utne Reader, Mother Earth News, New York Times, Bioneers and TIME Magazine. Nabhan is the recipient of many honors, including a MacArthur “Genius” award, a Lannan Literary Fellowship, a Southwest Book Award, the John Burroughs Medal for nature writing, the Vavilov Medal, as well as several honorary degrees and lifetime achievement awards. Local poet Jourdan Imani Keith will open the evening with a poem.

Presented by: Town Hall, The Common Acre, and Washington State University, as part of the Science series.
