Stewards of the Earth with Terry Tempest Williams

THU, MAR 29, 2018

Terry Tempest Williams examines our moral responsibility as stewards of the earth―and each other. She encourages engagement with communities, finding common ground where disagreements can respectfully occur, and creating a “wholeness” in the fragmentation that many experience in our society. A passionate advocate for wilderness and open spaces of the American West, she works to build a world where individuals can thrive in concert with their environment and where the environment can thrive because of the work of individuals―whether that environment is a refugee camp in Rwanda, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, or a planned development in a rural community.
