Peter Ellis will present the University of Maine’s fourth annual Libby Lecture in Natural Resource Policy at 3 p.m. on Sept. 21 at the Buchanan Alumni House.

Ellis’ talk, “Smarter logging for good: Sustainable, low-impact forestry as a natural climate solution,” will discuss the role of forest management in achieving global environmental, economic, and social goals. He will also elaborate on how the forest sector can help meet more local climate change policy objectives.

Ellis is the Global Director of Climate Science for The Nature Conservancy. He leads a global team of scientists that conduct research to motivate and inform the design and implementation of natural climate solutions. Ellis currently investigates the climate and biodiversity impacts of forest management. He works with field programs throughout the world to measure the climate performance of reduced impact logging.

The annual Libby Lecture in Natural Resource Policy was established with a gift from Lawrence W. Libby ‘62 and Lois Murdock Libby ‘63. The annual lecture is a collaborative event coordinated by the College of Natural Sciences, Forestry, and Agriculture and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

The event is free and open to the public. A reception with refreshments will follow the lecture.
