Posted: April 11, 2005
Â¬-- Former Sierra Club president and well-known conservationist Adam Werbach will be featured at a Denison all-campus convocation.

The event is sponsored by the Denison Lecture Series and is free and open to the public.
Werbach stunned the environmental establishment when he became the national president of the Sierra Club in the year after he graduated from college at age 23. During his tenure as president, the Sierra Club protected two million acres of land and lobbied to pass the strongest clean air standards ever. Now executive director of the Common Assets Defense Fund, he is launching a take-no-prisoners challenge of the environmental movement in a program that aims to change the way Americans think about politics.
Werbach hostedThin Green Line, an environmental news magazine on the Outdoor Life Network and was a regular guest on ABC's Politically Incorrect. He has been featured in publications such as The New York Times, People, LA Times, Newsweek, U.S. News and World Report, New Republic, and Time magazine.
A graduate of Brown University where he double majored in political science and modern culture and media, Werbach now lives in San Francisco.
