Free Lecture by Acclaimed Australian Naturalist Ian Hutton (10/2)

Free Lecture for Kauai CC faculty, staff, students and public: National Tropical Botanical Garden (NTBG) and Kauai CC are co-sponsoring a free lecture by acclaimed Australian naturalist Ian Hutton, on Tuesday, October 2nd, at 5:30 pm, in the KCC Cafeteria.

Mr. Hutton has spent more than 30 years studying the ecology of Lord Howe Island and will share the richness of its flora and fauna. Similarities between Lord Island and the Hawaiian Islands will be made evident in the lecture. (For newcomers to the college and/or island, the NTBG and KCC partnership is exciting, productive, creative and mutually appreciated. The lecture would be a great time to get to know NTBG and learn more about our connection.)

Mr. Hutton has a background in plant ecology and climatology and was awarded an Order of Australia Medal for his contributions to conservation and tourism. He has written numerous books and was the fist person licensed to conduct guided reef and botanical tours. He has also been a leader in creating voluntourism opportunities in invasive plant removal.
