In 1903, Theodore Roosevelt joined John Muir on a journey into the California wilderness. This humble camping trip would become a catalyst for momentous advancements in conservation, including the creation of multiple national parks and the protection of wildlife refuges and national forests.
Over a century later, we are overdue for a renewed meeting of political and philosophical minds that reexamines and improves upon the conversation, ushering conservationism into a new era that is more inclusive and justice-minded.
On September 30, 2021, join naturalist, artist, and bestselling Heyday author Obi Kaufmann (The California Field Atlas, The State of Water, and The Forests of California) and Wade Crowfoot, California’s Secretary of Natural Resources, as they explore a revitalized perspective on environmentalism and the future of California. Live Q&A with attendees will follow the video.
This event is presented by WildboundLive in partnership with Climate Neutral, Peak Design, Mountain Area Preservation, the Shane McConkey Foundation, Project Coyote, California Trout, Bay Nature, Sierra State Parks, the Mojave Desert Land Trust, and us at Heyday.
