Panelists: Daniel Mathews, John Marzluff, & Lee Van Der Voo; Moderator: Gloria Brown
We hope you’ll join us! RSVP below.
On Saturday, several of our outstanding authors will be holding a panel on the dangers and opportunities that arise in the future with regards to climate change, dangerous wildfires, and sustainable food practices that can protect and preserve biological diversity.
Daniel Mathews warned about the threat to our forests and the fires that would come in his book, Trees in Trouble: Wildfires, Infestations and Climate Change. Yet, in understanding the extent of the problem, he also provides some hope and presents some possible solutions.
In John Marzluff’s latest book, In Search of Meadowlarks: Birds, Farms, and Food in Harmony with the Land, he explores using sustainable farming practices that can protect and preserve biological diversity.
In As the World Burns, Lee van der Voo reports on the ground-breaking court case pitting young adults against the forces behind climate change (Juliana v. the United States).
Our moderator, Gloria Brown, is the author of Black Woman in Green: Gloria D. Brown and the Unmarked Trail to Forest Service Leadership, and had on the ground responsibility as the Forest Supervisor of the Siuslaw National Forest for wrangling the first Northwest Forest Service Plan for Siuslaw that included environmental considerations when weighing the value of the forest resources.
