William R. Jordan III, the person who coined the term “restoration ecology,” and one of the founders of the modern discipline of restoration, will be giving a free public talk as part of the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden’s “Thought Leader Series.” This event is co-sponsored by the UC Davis John Muir Institute for the Environment.

The lecture will be followed by a question-and-answer period and signing of Bill Jordan’s recent books, Making Nature Whole and The Sunflower Forest.

Who should attend?
Anyone interested in finding out more about how environmental restoration practices—the attempt to guide damaged ecosystems back to a previous, usually more natural condition—can truly be integrated into the everyday life of local people and local communities.

Jordan is engaging the UC Davis community in a conversation about developing a new environmentalism capable of providing the means for negotiating a healthy, sustainable relationship between humans and the rest of nature. Building on the deep need for people to have a “strong engagement with nature,” Bill Jordan is exploring a range of practices—practical, scientific, artistic, therapeutic, and spiritual—that recognize the challenge of helping people orient themselves towards nature, heal themselves, and help build stronger, richer communities while restoring local landscapes.

As director of the New Academy for Nature and Culture and Co-director of DePaul University’s Institute for Nature and Culture, Jordan is guiding new ambitious programs of research, education and public participation that will provide leadership in the urgent task of setting environmentalism on a new course during the critical decade just ahead.
