Richard Wright, professor emeritus of biology at Gordon College, Wenham, Mass., will speak on an environmental theme at the second Suter Science Seminar of the fall semester.

Dr. Wright will speak on “Stewardship, Sustainability and Sound Science: Healing a Sick Planet,” at 4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 18 in the Suter Science Center Auditorium (S-106). His address will focus on strategic themes that can give direction to human interactions with natural systems in order to forge a sustainable future.

Wright co-authored a major college textbook that is currently in its eighth edition, “Environmental Science: Toward a Sustainable Future.” He is also the author of the book, “Biology through the Eyes of Faith,” which provides insights into the linkage between Christian faith and Science.

The seminar, the second of four scheduled for this fall, are made possible in part by a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation and the American Scientific Affiliation (ASA).

Refreshments will be available at the Suter Science Center Auditorium 15 minutes before the presentation.

The seminar is open to the public, free of charge. For more information, call Dr. Roman J. Miller at (540) 432-4412 or e-mail millerrj@emu.edu.
