Billings, Batiuk Lecture Rescheduled February 24
SALISBURY, MD---Like clean air and water? Leon Billings and Rich Batiuk can’t take all the credit … but they have done their part for the past several decades.
Environmental leaders Leon Billings and Rich Batiuk speak to students in Salisbury University’s Environmental Studies Department 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, February 24, in Perdue Hall’s Bennett Family Auditorium. Their presentation was rescheduled from February 17 due to inclement weather.
Batiuk is associate director for science, analysis and implementation for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. With the EPA, he has worked at the Chesapeake Bay Program for more than 25 years, leading the integration of science with multi-partner decision-making. In that capacity, he is leading efforts to help state and local partners reduce nutrient and sediment pollution.
Much of what he is doing today is based on Billings’ work from nearly half a century ago, linking past and present conservation efforts.
Sponsored by the Environmental Studies Department, admission to their presentation is free and the public is invited. For more information call 410-543-6030 or visit the SU website at www.salisbury.edu.
