Portland Audubon warmly welcomes Teresa Baker, a national leader in bringing diversity, equity and inclusion into the outdoor world.

Teresa, founder of the African American National Parks Event and the Outdoor Industry CEO Diversity Pledge, will share a bit of her personal journey and how she has come to learn that the success of environmentalism will depend on strengthening the diversity in our movement and those experiencing the rewards of outdoor spaces. 

Following Teresa’s presentation, we will have a panel discussion with local leaders and innovators in Outdoor Equity including Mercy Shammah of Wild Diversity, Miché Lozano of Latino Outdoors, and Greg Smith, Field Biologist. The panel will be an interactive experience to hear more about the exciting, and sometimes difficult, changes necessary to create a better, more diverse and inclusive outdoor culture. 

Join Teresa, Mercy, Miché, Greg and Portland Audubon at Ecotrust’s Billy Frank Jr. Conference room to see how you can help be a part of these instrumental changes.

Please note, we will be celebrating Nature Night’s first partnership with Ecotrust as a host of our event but that parking may be limited. We encourage using public transportation to this event.
