The University of Nevada, Reno at Lake Tahoe hosts its new public speakers series Talks@Tahoe Wednesday, Sept. 28, where Incline Village and surrounding communities can join together for engaging conversations with notable guests to engage in meaningful conversations on topics relevant to the local region, nation and world.
The first speaker of the series is Sudeep Chandra with his talk, "My Lake Tahoe: Science actions to conserve nature and our economy." Chandra is Professor of Limnology and Conservation Ecology in the College of Science at the University, Associate Director, Castle Lake Environmental Research & Education Program and Director of the Global Water Center.
“Understanding the historical changes to the watershed and current environmental challenges like addressing the impacts of wildfires will be important for all who interested in supporting our regional economy and natural ecosystem,” Chandra said. “I look forward to starting the conversation with Talks@Tahoe and opening up the dialogue with our community on how we can create the new citizenry of Tahoe and protect our lake.”
Talks@Tahoe is a fun and informative community speaker series with a talk/performance followed by a light refreshment reception.
“Our Talks@Tahoe series will help our University make a more intimate connection with the Incline and Lake Tahoe communities through a public speaker series featuring some of the University’s finest teachers and researchers,” University President Brian Sandoval said. “These are gatherings where we can share why the University and the members of the Incline and Lake Tahoe community are partners in realizing an exciting future for the region. In many ways these talks are not just about reaching out; they are also conversations for the University to hear the many hopes and dreams of the local community about the future of Lake Tahoe and the role our University of Nevada, Reno at Lake Tahoe will play in making that future a reality.”
