    Florian Schulz, the professional wildlife photographer behind the book To The Arctic, will visit the University of Michigan to give a multimedia presentation of his work on Thursday, February 7. The presentation will take place at 5:10 pm in the Dana Building, room 1040, at the University of Michigan, and will include Schulz’s photos, stories, and video from the Arctic. Schulz’s presentation is free and open to the public.
    While in Ann Arbor, Schulz will also present workshops to students at the University of Michigan, as one of four media professionals hosted by the university’s Program in the Environment (PitE). Through hands-on exercises and projects, students in these workshops will bring environmental issues to life in ways not achieved in a classroom or lab.
    “I have always been driven by a tremendous passion for wild places,” says Schulz of his work in conservation photography, “A landscape free of human imprint speaks to me of something ancient, something real.”
    Schulz’s presentation is hosted by University of Michigan Program in the Environment, and co-sponsored by the School of Natural Resources and Environment (SNRE) and the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences in LSA.
