Dana / 002 Meeting Room

Environmental issues spanning thousands of miles can seem remote and nebulous, but they often relate in surprising ways to our lives in central Maine. This talk will focus on local connections to three big-picture stories: long-range air pollutants, the fungus that is killing amphibians worldwide, and migratory fish management.

Environmental journalist Murray Carpenter, most recently a reporter for the Maine Public Broadcasting Network, holds an M.S. in environmental studies and has freelanced for the New York Times, the Boston Globe, the Christian Science Monitor, and Audubon Magazine. He has produced radio reports for NPR's All Things Considered and Morning Edition and Public Radio International's The World and Living on Earth. Arrive at 11:30 a.m. for lunch with the speaker.
