A Multi-University Webinar Series
The GWC is proud to be a founding member of an unprecedented coalition of university centers from across the western United States who are hosting a series of Conservation Conversations. We will explore the challenges of the future and identify specific policies, programs, and strategies to help secure the long-term health of the nation’s natural resources, wildlife and landscapes, and broaden the benefits for all Americans. Each webinar will explore the best solutions to confront the widespread environmental challenges facing our country in 2020 and beyond, and the series will delve into a number of timely, critical topics, such as the 30×30 campaign, wildfire management, conservation as a rural economic driver, traditional knowledge and collaborative management, equitable access, urban green space, and environmental justice.
Save the date for the first installment at Noon on July 29, hosted by former National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis at UC Berkeley:
Biodiversity Conservation Effectiveness Within U.S. Protected Areas
The GWC will present the third conversation on August 25:
Another Way of Knowing: Indian Tribes, Collaborative Management & Public Lands
Steeped in on the ground experience, our three speakers will dive into the role that traditional knowledge and collaborative management can and should play in decision-making on public lands. This will include lessons learned from Bears Ears National Monument, specific recommendations about integrating collaborative management between tribes and federal agencies on public lands, and the ways traditional knowledge can enrich our understanding of the natural world.
Daniel Cordalis, a member of the Navajo Nation, is a practicing natural resources and Indian law attorney who works closely with Tribes. Daniel also serves on the GWC Advisory Council.
Jim Enote, a Zuni tribal member, is the CEO of the Colorado Plateau Foundation.
Charles Wilkinson, is the Moses Lasky Professor of Law Emeritus and Distinguished University Professor Emeritus at Colorado Law.
