Oregonians across the political spectrum place a high value on the diverse natural resources of our state, but we are divided about how these resources should be used and talked about. What do we want from nature? What do we understand nature to be, and how do we see ourselves fitting in?
This is the focus of “What We Want from the Wild,” a free conversation with Adam Davis at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 14 at the Josephy Center for Arts and Culture. This program is hosted by Wallowa Land Trust and sponsored by Oregon Humanities. The event is part of Oregon Humanities’ statewide Conversation Project.
Davis is the executive director of Oregon Humanities. His previous roles include directing the Center for Civic Reflection, where he helped the Aldo Leopold Foundation develop their Land Ethic Leader training, and the United States Forest Service, where he led backcountry trail crews and occasionally fought wildland fire. He has taught courses and led workshops on the human relationship to nature.
Through the Conversation Project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to their daily lives and Oregon state’s future.
