      Robert Bonnie: Beyond Confrontation and Regulation: Towards a New Conservation Paradigm

      College of Business Auditorium
      Thursday, April 4, 2019, 7 – 9pm



      Robert Bonnie, former Under Secretary for Natural Resources and Environment at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is scheduled to deliver a free public talk in Laramie to discuss the evolution from old models of wildlife and natural resource conservation on public lands towards approaches that integrate incentives and collaboration across landownership boundaries.  

      The talk, "Beyond Confrontation and Regulation: Towards a New Conservation Paradigm," is scheduled to take place at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 4, in the College of Business Auditorium on the University of Wyoming campus. A reception will follow the event. The talk is supported by the Whitney MacMillan Private Land Stewardship Program and is being offered as part of the UW Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources’ new Distinguished Speaker Series. 

      Bonnie is currently a Rubenstein Fellow at Duke University, where he works on conservation and environmental issues in rural America. Before joining Duke, Bonnie served as Under Secretary for Natural Resources and Environment at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) during the second term of the Obama Administration. In this role, he oversaw the U.S. Forest Service and the Natural Resources Conservation Service and was responsible for overseeing a variety of natural resource issues including management of the 193 million-acre National Forest and Grassland System; implementation of Farm Bill conservation programs on America's farms, ranches, and forests; and climate change. During President Obama's first term, he served as Senior Advisor to Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack for environment and climate change. Prior to joining USDA, Bonnie was Vice President for Land Conservation at the Environmental Defense Fund where he focused on developing incentives to reward farmers, ranchers, and forest owners for stewardship activities on private lands. He holds master degrees in forestry and environmental management from the Nicholas School at Duke University.
      The Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources’ Distinguished Speaker Series is a forum for environmental and natural resource leaders to share stories and inspire communities.
