Environmental journalist and filmmaker Ben Raines offers a fresh perspective on the South and the incredibly diverse landscape beneath our feet. Alabama has more than twice the species diversity per square mile than any other state, and Georgia has similar diversity. Raines has won dozens of awards for his coverage of environmental issues, and he also wrote the award-winning nature book, Saving America’s Amazon. A book signing will follow the lecture.

Please note that the Garden will be closed during the day on Monday, and will open at 6 p.m. for guests attending the lecture.

The Dorothy Chapman Fuqua Lecture Series is made possible by the generous support of the families of Edwina and Tom Johnson, and Duvall and Rex Fuqua.

When: Monday, September 19, 7 p.m.
