October 11, 2000 -- "Saving Nature" will be the theme of a national conservation conference Oct. 19-20 sponsored by the University of Virginia School of Law’s Center for Environmental Studies.

With protection of forests, coastlines, wildlife habitat and other valuable natural resources emerging as a top national priority, the conference will explore and evaluate theories, tools and strategies that will shape conservation policy in the years ahead. Leading scholars, government officials, activists and conservation-agency heads, bringing diverse and competing perspectives, will be among speakers and panel participants. There is a $15 registration fee, which includes a lunch. [News media are invited to attend all sessions free of charge.]

David Hayes, U.S. deputy secretary of the interior, will give the conference’s keynote address at 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 20, in Caplin Pavilion. Other sessions will be held in Withers/Brown Hall 102. [A schedule is attached.]
