A talk on “Rachel Carson, Wood Pellets, and Environmental Justice” is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Sept. 29 at University of North Carolina Wilmington.
Dr. Bob Musil, president and CEO of the Rachel Carson Council, is set to share Carson’s love of North Carolina and “how she would have been deeply opposed to the widespread clear-cutting of forests to produce wood pellets for overseas electricity production,” according to the organization.
The public is welcome to attend the free event in Morton Hall, room 100.
The Rachel Carson Council is a national environmental advocacy organization founded in 1965 to carry on the work and legacy of Rachel Carson, author of “Silent Spring.”
Musil is also expected to speak about the Rachel Carson Council, or RCC, its fellowship program for students and how to get involved. The RCC Fellowship Program was designed to provide students who have a passion for environmental education, organizing and advocacy and provide them financial support to carry out projects and campaigns on behalf of the council.
