The community is invited to attend two sustainability lectures this February at Folsom Lake College.

Eldridge Moores, PhD, will speak on Wednesday, Feb. 27 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the El Dorado Center, 6699 Campus Drive in Placerville and Steven E. Schwarzbach, PhD, will present on Thursday, Feb. 28 from 7 to 9pm at the main Folsom campus, 10 College Parkway in Folsom.

Moores is a distinguished Professor Emeritus of geology at the University of California, Davis.

Most people recognize the name Eldridge Moores from the book “Assembling California,” a treatise of California geology by award winning author John Mcphee. Moores was his personal guide.

His fascinating career spans the entire timeline of Plate Tectonics Theory.

Moores will discuss how the decisions we make on critical issues such as climate change, energy resources and water will determine the sustainability of human societies.

The organizers of the series invite the community to join Moores for “Living with Revolutions” on Wednesday, Feb. 27 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the El Dorado Center in the Community Room C-102.

Schwarzbach is the director of the Western Ecological Research Center — U.S. Geological Survey.

Schwarzbach will look at his own career, a career that has taken him to 21 countries, and the conservation movement through the lens of environmental changes over the past 40 years.

The environmental movement has rapidly grown in the last century and a half. The emphasis on the preservation of beautiful vistas and providing the greatest good for the greatest number of people and abundant natural resources has changed dramatically over time, which Schwarzbach will describe in detail.

Schwarzbach’s “Shifting Paradigms for both an Environmental Scientist’s Career and the Conservation Movement” is on Thursday, Feb. 28 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the main Folsom campus in the Community Room, Aspen Hall room FL1-20.

Admission to both events is free. A daily parking pass can be purchased for $1. Maps to the campuses can be found at flc.losrios.edu — just click on “Maps” at the top of the home page and then either “Main Folsom Campus” or “El Dorado Center.”

The events are hosted by Mike Denega, biology adjunct faculty, and the El Dorado County Career Technical Partnership SB70 Sustainability Team.

A college of the Los Rios Community College District and one of California’s 112 Community Colleges, Folsom Lake College serves approximately 8,700 students at the main Folsom campus, El Dorado Center, and Rancho Cordova Center.
