Those who have read my books and blogs find a deep appreciation for America’s history woven in. After all, every journey is an adventure in two dimensions: the present and—if we look closely enough—our past.

Keeping Stories Alive

As I’ve researched my books, I’ve had the realization that keeping the stories of our conservation heritage alive has become an important aspect of my work — that there’s an inherent danger in not passing down the inspirational stories from our past, If we don’t share the wisdom of our predecessors, why should future generations care?

That’s why I created the video series, Voices of the Wilderness.

National Screening Hosted by USFWS — July 7, 2020 at 7 p.m. EST

My latest video, Howard Zahniser: Champion for the Wilderness highlights one of the least known and most influential conservation pioneers in American history. “Zahnie”, as he was affectionately known, gave everything he had — including his health, and ultimately his life — to steer the Wilderness Act of 1964 to passage. His efforts led to the protection of over 100 million acres of American wilderness. 

The USFWS will host a nationwide screening followed by Q&A on July 7. 2020 at 7 p.m. Please mark your calendar.

This page will be updated with a link to the event, as soon as it becomes available.
