Hosted by Cory Christopher, Director of the Center for Conservation at Cincinnati Nature Center, this popular series promotes science with solutions by sharing information about conservation research and initiatives and by connecting like-minded people who want to help make a difference.

A Force for Nature: Lucy Braun

Our program begins with a viewing of the documentary A Force for Nature: Lucy Braun.  Braun (1889-1971) was a Cincinnati botanist, ecologist and expert on the forests of the eastern United States. A groundbreaking 20th century scientist, she advocated tirelessly and passionately for preservation.  At the film’s conclusion, a panel of area conservation experts will lead a discussion about Braun, her legacy and the documentary.
