Special Events at Woodend

Author Lecture

DDT Wars
Thursday, September 29 (7:30-9 pm)
Woodend Sanctuary, Chevy Chase, MD







DDT Wars is the untold inside story of the decade-long scientific, legal and strategic campaign that culminated in the national ban of the insecticide DDT in 1972. This case history represents one of the greatest environmental victories of recent decades. Join us on Thursday, September 29 for a talk entitled "DDT Ban: Greatest Conservation Accomplishment in Our Nation's History." by author Charles Wurster. Wurster was born and raised in Philadelphia, went to Haverford College, University of Delaware, and received a PhD in chemistry from Stanford University (1957). He is a lifelong birder, which got him interested in DDT.
