A free webinar coming up on March 10th:

Searching for the Wild in the Age of Man

March 10th, 2016

3:30-4:30 pm EST

Have humans really tamed every inch of the world? Despite more than 100 years of stewardship and protection from agencies like the National Park Service, America’s wild places are still vulnerable to commercial and residential land development. In the Grand Canyon, uranium mining and increasing rates of tourism not only threaten land and air quality, they also undermine a social balance that Native Americans and other local groups have worked hard to maintain. On March 10th, join Jason Mark, editor-in-chief of SIERRA Magazine and author of Satellites in the High Country (Island Press) and Lucy Moore, environmental mediator and author of Common Ground on Hostile Turf (Island Press) as they discuss the importance of wild places in America and how stakeholders can work together to resolve their environmental disputes.
