Location:  Hope Lutheran Church,  2152 W. Graf (off of South 19th)

Cost:  FREE and open to the public.

Details: Recent calls have been made to protect the Earth’s remaining wild lands and complete the system of protected areas by establishing an ecologically-connected network that better represents all ecosystems and species.

Join SAS and Travis Belote of the Wilderness Society for an informational presentation about their efforts to create a connected network of protected areas that better represent biodiversity. The Wilderness Society recently conducted a national assessment for expanding U.S. protected areas to include the wildest unprotected lands. This assessment can help guide conservation planning for expanding the system of U.S. protected areas to sustain biodiversity in the face of future threats.

Travis Belote has served as a research ecologist in the Northern Rockies Office of The Wilderness Society in Bozeman, MT since 2009. His research focuses on understanding the basic science of ecosystems to inform conservation and adaptive management under increasing pressures of global change (including land use, climate change, and invasive species). He completed his M.S. at the University of Tennessee, Ph.D. at Virginia Tech, and conducted postdoctoral research with the USGS in Flagstaff, AZ. 

Sacajawea Audubon Society programs are free and open to the public. Our programs feature a special guest speaker the 2nd Monday of each month, September through May, at Hope Lutheran Church, 2152 W. Graf (off of S. 19th). Join us for a social at 6:30 p.m. followed by the program at 7:00 p.m.
