The Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies annual Jordahl Public Lands Lecture will feature Carolyn Finney, author of Black Faces, White Spaces; Assistant Professor of Geography, University of Kentucky.

The Jordahl Public Lands Lecture honors Wisconsin conservation pioneer Harold "Bud" Jordahl who was the architect of much of the conservation policy framework that we take for granted today. The Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Fund, the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore and the Gaylord Nelson Wilderness, the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center and much more exist due in large part to his efforts. Jordahl was also an inspiring professor of urban and regional planning, cooperative extension and environmental studies who influenced the careers of hundreds of students. The Jordahl Lecture has been established to honor his legacy and continue his work into the future. This annual event will define the latest thinking in public lands acquisition, stewardship and science.
