         EAU CLAIRE  The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire geography department will sponsor "Wisconsin's Environment and the Need for a Public Intervenor," a lecture by Kathleen Falk, scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12, in Schofield Auditorium.
         Falk, current Dane County executive and candidate for Wisconsin governor, will discuss her experiences as Wisconsin's last public intervenor and her vision of Wisconsin's environment.
