On Nov. 20, the UW School of Environmental and Forest Sciences will welcome Heather Hansman, author of “Downriver into the Future of Water in the West.” She will present, “Writing Conservation Stories,” a talk on writing about complicated conservation topics, why water makes people emotional, and how to tell all sides of a story.

The seminar begins at 3:30 p.m. in the Forest Club Room, and a Q&A will be held afterward. Light refreshments will also be served afterward.
