HANCEVILLE, ALA. – Dr. Doug Phillips, host of “Discovering Alabama,” will serve as Wallace State’s guest speaker for Earth Day on Thursday, April 21 at 11:30 a.m., in room 219 of the School of Nursing and Center for Science.

Phillips is widely known for his adventurous travels in Alabama’s wildlands as host of the Emmy-honored “Discovering Alabama,” an educational documentary series on Alabama Public Television featuring the natural history and wonders of Alabama.

Phillips has pioneered many other important Alabama initiatives for education and conservation, including the acclaimed model school curriculum, “Discovering Our Heritage: Incorporating Environmental Education to Integrate the Teaching of History, Geography, Science, Mathematics, and Language Arts – A Community Collaborative Approach,” and the nationally-recognized model for wildland conservation, the Alabama Forever Wild Program.

Phillips currently serves as the Coordinator for Environmental Information and Education with the Alabama Museum of Natural History at the University of Alabama.

Wallace State recognizes Earth Day each year, whether it’s planting trees on campus or the college hosting a variety of speakers to commemorate the event.

Earth Day activities are sponsored each year by the Wallace State Green Team.

Phillips’s presentation is open to the public.
