Dr. Jerry F. Franklin to be awarded Pinchot Medallion
Jan 22, 2016
Join us on Thursday, February 18th at 3pm at the Cosmos Club for the 2016 Pinchot Distinguished Lecture. Dr. Jerry F. Franklin, Professor of Ecosystem Analysis at the University of Washington College of Forest Resources, will discuss the profound shift in ecosystem science and policy that has taken place in the last generation, and how this too will change as we experience environmental changes that have no analog in the past. With the Northwest Forest Plan as context, he will describe the continuing evolution in ecosystem science, and the challenges and opportunities this brings for policymakers, forest managers, and local communities.

Dr. Franklin will be the 12th recipient of the Pinchot Medallion, an award honoring an individual's extraordinary and valuable contributions to science or practice in environmental conservation and sustainable natural resources management. The medallion is named for Gifford Pinchot, and honors his leadership, intellect, and profound impact on the philosophy and course of natural resources management. The medallion is the highest award given by the Pinchot Institute.
