Embracing the Elements

Dorinda Dallmeyer presents President Jimmy Carter with a copy of her book ELEMENTAL SOUTH: AN ANTHOLOGY OF SOUTHERN NATURE WRITING. Dallmeyer and Carter met at a Paddle Georgia event in Oglethorpe, Georgia, where a week-long trip on the Flint River ended with a fish fry. Carter was present to officially announce the formation of the Flint Riverkeeper group.

Dallmeyer directs the Environmental Ethics Certificate Program at the University of Georgia. Dallmeyer's passion for the natural South led her to form the Southern Nature Writers Project, an organization devoted to thinking and writing about the southern landscape.
