Center for Environmental and Sustainability Education

Signature Events


One of the primary goals of the Center for Environmental and Sustainability Education is “To educate for an ecologically literate citizenry and to advance civic engagement in the critical environmental issues of the Western Everglades and Barrier Islands. Key areas of emphasis will include ethics, activism, and the literary arts.”

In order to achieve this goal, we have created two signature events, the Rachel Carson Distinguished Lecture, which occurs in the Spring, and the Terry Tempest Williams Student Dialogue, which occurs in the Fall. In addition to these Signature Events, the Center hosts other Public Events.
