Teaching & Trekking through the Tropics

image (2)Following in the steps of Aldo Leopold’s legacy, Dr. John L. Clark has spent his career in the pursuit of discovering and documenting plant diversity. As the Aldo Leopold Distinguished Teaching Chair in Environmental Science and Ethics, Clark directs annual research expeditions during summer and spring breaks to Ecuador and Cuba for Lawrenceville School students where they too can participate in biodiversity scholarship through experiential learning. Travel enthusiasts, scientists, and art aficionados will be delighted to see 24 enlarged, full-color O’Keeffe-like images of new and thought-to-be-extinct flowering plant species in photographs taken by Clark and now displayed in the Fathers Building. Candid photos of students, faculty, and Aldo Leopold (Courtesy of the Leopold Foundation) are also on display. This exhibit is designed and sponsored by The Stephan Archives.
