Goodall is the scientist famous for the landmark study of chimpanzee behavior and a leader of environmental conservation.
Goodall will discuss her experiences in nature and botany. Following her lecture, there will be a question-and-answer segment moderated by Eric Eisenberg, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.
Goodall’s newest publication, “Seeds of Hope: Wisdom and Wonder from the World of Plants,” along with many of her other publications, will be available for purchase following the lecture discussion. A book signing will take place at the conclusion of the event.
