wilderness and the human role

wilderness and the human roleThe concept of “wilderness” has changed throughout history, and can influence the way we relate to the natural world. Zane Lawyer, CFA Education Arborist, will give a talk on the evolving meaning of wilderness and its significance for the future of the Catskill region. Following the presentation, a wide-ranging open discussion on wilderness will be held with attendees to further clarify the role of humans in the environment. Participants are encouraged to tell their own stories, perspectives, and first-hand experiences with wilderness and how their understanding has or hasn’t evolved over time.

Recommended readings for discussion:

  • The Trouble with Wilderness or, Getting Back to the Wrong Nature by William Cronon [short read]
  • The Land Ethic essay by Aldo Leopold [short read]
  • Wilderness and the American Mind by Roderick Frasier Nash [long read]

This event is free to attend. RSVP is encouraged but not required.
