Odum School of Ecology executive director receives award

Laurie Fowler, executive director for public service and external affairs at the Odum School and director for policy of the UGA River Basin Center, received the State Bar of Georgia Environmental Law Section Award at the Environmental Law Section annual kickoff luncheon in Atlanta.

Fowler, who also serves as an adjunct faculty at the UGA School of Law, leads the multidisciplinary Environmental Practicum, a graduate service-learning course she initiated in 1996 to bring students from law, ecology, environmental design and other fields together to use knowledge gained in the classroom to solve real-world environmental problems for local governments, agencies and nonprofit organizations.
