Finger Lakes Land Trust and Finger Lakes Institute to Host Discussion with Pulitzer Prize-nominated Author Dan Egan

The Finger Lakes Land Trust and the Finger Lakes Institute will host an online conversation with Pulitzer Prize-nominated author Dan Egan on Tuesday, March 5 at 7:30 p.m. The discussion will focus on the role of phosphorus in our daily lives, how it impacts our environment, and its role in shaping agriculture.

Dan Egan for many years covered the Great Lakes for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Now he writes occasional long-form pieces about climate change for national media outlets, including the New York Times, and is a senior water policy fellow at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s School of Freshwater Sciences. He is the author of THE DEVIL’S ELEMENT: PHOSPHORUS AND A WORLD OUT OF BALANCE and the New York Times bestseller THE DEATH AND LIFE OF THE GREAT LAKES. Twice a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, he has won the Alfred I. duPont–Columbia University Award, John B. Oakes Award, AAAS Kavli Science Journalism Award, and J. Anthony Lukas Work-in-Progress Award. A graduate of the Columbia Journalism School, he lives in Milwaukee with his wife and children.

An important issue in the Finger Lakes, the discussion will be of interest to anyone concerned about the health of our waterways. This event is sponsored by the Finger Lakes Land Trust and the Finger Lakes Institute and will be moderated by Harold van Es, Professor of Soil and Water Management at Cornell University.
