About the Series The Edwin Way Teale Lecture Series developed as a joint effort of a number of departments, out of discussions initiated in 1995 by faculty members and graduate students with common interests in the many facets of environmental issues. The Lecture Series is designed to bring a variety of distinguished speakers to the University to speak on various aspects of nature and the environment.

The Teale Lecture Series received the Joshua's Trust Conservation Award in recognition of Outstanding Conservation Efforts in 2007. A poster for the lectures is available here.
