CHESTERTOWN, MD—On Tuesday, October 20, 2015, the Center for Environment & Society at Washington College will host a talk by biologist Greg Farley on his recent book, Thinking Like an Island: Navigating a Sustainable Future in Hawai’i. The talk will take place in Litrenta Hall, Toll Science Center, at 6:00 p.m. A book sale and signing will follow. 

Island populations are generally ahead of the curve in sustainability because their resources are so limited compared to those on the mainland. For his book, Farley studied the island communities in Hawai’i to learn about their sustainable practices. At Washington College, he will discuss how those lessons can be applied on the Delmarva Peninsula. 

Greg Farley is Director of the Center for Leadership in Environmental Education and Professor of Biological Science at Chesapeake College in Wye Mills. A marine zoologist and evolutionary biologist, he holds an MS from Florida State University and a BS from Duke University. He conducted much of his research as a Visiting Scholar at University of Hawai’i Maui College in 2
