Hello there,

The final installment of the 2019 Wilderness Lecture Series will take place on April 2nd at 7pm in the Gallagher Business Bldg., Room 123, on the UM campus.  Free and open to the public.  Please see event description below:

Becca Skinner - "Storytelling Through the Lens: How Photography Influences Conservation Efforts"

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but how can images shape the ways we protect and relate to our changing climate and world? Throughout her career as a photographer and writer, Becca Skinner has focused her camera lens on everything from post-natural disaster communities to the conservation of the outdoors, showing the relationship between humans and landscape. In this talk presented by the Wilderness Institute, Skinner outlines highlights in her career--from her work as a National Geographic Young Explorer, to a lasting interest in protecting Western landscapes, to a mature knowledge of the value of images as tools for education and change in an increasingly interconnected and media-heavy world.

Join us for this free public lecture and discussion on Tuesday, April 2nd at 7 p.m. in the Gallagher Business Building 123 on the University of Montana campus. Skinner's talk is the sixth in the Wild Hope: Fearless Risk Takers, Art Markers and Storytellers on Wilderness and Conservation Front Lines lecture series, presented by the Wilderness Institute. This is the last installment in the 2019 Wilderness Lecture Series.
