Alabama At the Crossroads: Biodiversity, Civil Rights, and Science Education from the Black Belt to Paint Rock

Join us for The Half-Earth Project® in Alabama At the Crossroads: Biodiversity, Civil Rights, and Science Education from the Black Belt to Paint Rock.

Alabama’s striking intersection of biological and human history, cultural heritage, and diversity make it an important Place for a Half-Earth Future.

The E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation and its Half-Earth Project will travel to Dr. Wilson’s home state in a live online conversation. We will hear about a new generation being trained in ground-breaking forest research methodology. We will also hear how–in an area the size of New Jersey–conservation is being promoted at a large scale and in novel ways while celebrating and supporting people and their needs.

E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation Chief Marketing Officer Joel R. Johnson will moderate a panel conversation with President & CEO Paula Ehrlich and Principal Conservation Science Advisor Bill Finch, along with special guest partners: Patience Knight of the Paint Rock Forest Research Center and Phillip Howard of the Alabama River Diversity Network.

This free live event does not require registration.
