The Wilderness Society in the 21st Century: New Concepts of Wilderness, Wildness, Inclusion & Belonging


October 24th, Thursday, 6:30 p.m.  

Dr. Alexandra Sutton Lawrence, the southeast regional program director for The Wilderness Society, will detail our increasing focus on the relationship between people and landscape – especially between marginalized people and wild places. She will describe the pairing of the work of the TWS Landscape Initiative (goal: to create a continental analysis of climate-resilient regions and high-biodiversity regions) with that of folks like herself (goal: to build lasting, authentic relationships with African-American, Native-American, Latino & blended ethnic communities in key regions) – and talk about how that shapes our vision for wilderness in the 21st Century.
