Mr. Louv is the 2008 Audubon Medal awardee, a prestigious award from the National Audubon Society given in recognition of outstanding achievement in conservation and environmental protection. Fellow awardees include Walt Disney, Jimmy Carter, Rachel Carson, and Sir David Attenborough.

Creator of the term “nature-deficit disorder,” Mr. Louv will speak on the importance of nature for the health and well-being of both our children and our world, followed by a lengthy Q&A opportunity.

Mr. Louv’s books will be available for purchase in the lobby and he will be available to sign books after the event.
