Jane Goodall to speak in person at UM on Sunday

Zoe Buchli

Dr. Jane Goodall, a world-renowned environmentalist and activist, will speak in person at the University of Montana on Sunday evening.

Goodall’s talk, “Hope Through Action,” is a part of the University President’s Lecture Series. It will begin at 6 p.m. at the Oval on campus, and is free and open to the public. 

If you can’t attend in person, the event will also be streamed virtually. 

Seating will be festival-style, UM spokesperson Dave Kuntz said.

The university will provide about 500 chairs under a shaded tent area, but Kuntz encouraged people to bring their own chairs. Seating is first-come, first-served. 

“There is much that all of us can learn from Jane Goodall and her tireless efforts to protect not only the wildlife that inhabits our planet, but the people, too,” UM President Seth Bodnar said in the release. “She has proven that the well-being of one does not have to come at the expense of the other. We’re extremely excited to have her visit UM, and I encourage all of Missoula to come hear her important message.”
