Jeff Corwin, a popular animal conservationist and television personality, will make an appearance at Davidson County Community College on Monday.
Corwin will give a free lecture in the DCCC Conference Center on the Davidson Campus at 7 p.m. That will be followed by a question and answer session and photo opportunities.
In his lectures, Corwin addresses the world’s extinction crisis and helps audiences understand how they can make a difference regarding ecology and conservation of the Earth and its wildlife. He’s also interested in promoting ways to create awareness of renewable and sustainable living.
Before the lecture, Corwin will meet privately with DCCC’s Zoo and Aquarium Science students and instructors. Corwin’s lecture, “100 Heartbeats: The Race to Save the World’s Most Endangered Species,” is part of a project that includes a book of the same name and an NBC documentary.
Seating for Corwin’s lecture is limited to the first 250 guests. For more information, contact Dr. Mark Branson, dean of DCCC’s School of Arts, Sciences and Education at mbranson@davidsonccc. edu or call 336-249-8186, ext. 6348.
