November 10, 2021 • 12:30 PM • Law School 3043

Controlled animal feeding operations have created a swath of problems across North Carolina and many other states. Nutrient pollution threatens the health of aquatic life in our nation's waters. Join the Food Law Society for a panel with Hannah Connor from the Center for Biological Diversity and Will Hendrick from the North Carolina Conservation Network where we will explore why nutrient pollution is a problem, how controlled animal feeding operations have contributed to nutrient pollution, and what solutions policymakers can employ to fix it. This event is co-sponsored by the Environmental Law Society and Duke Water Network. For more information, please contact Nathan Schumacher at nathan.schumacher@duke.edu
