Join us on a lilac-scented evening in May at Gilsland Farm Audubon Center!

In partnership with Maine Audubon, the Environmental Health Strategy Center invites you to join us on a lilac-scented spring evening to hear an enthusiastic and sought-after public speaker. Dr. Sandra Steingraber is an ecologist, author, and cancer survivor well-known across the world for her ground-breaking book and documentary film, Living Downstream.

Now she’s written the introductory essay to a just-released Library of America anthology of Rachel Carson's work. Her talk will bring Carson's legacy to life—and show how Carson is a model today for environmental champions who ground their activism in science.
