COMMON LANDS SPEAKER SERIES
Westminster College Environmental Center and Round River Conservation Studies are pleased to bring you Common Lands. This sequence of speakers will engage individuals in the care of the collective ownership of land and the obligations that come with managing our natural resources. Protecting, preserving, and enhancing those areas for the benefit of their wild inhabitants and human visitors is contingent upon all of us taking care of of what is entrusted to us. Join us in the conversations surrounding common lands and connect with the beauty of nature.
This speaker series is sponsored by Westminster College Environmental Center and Round River Conservation Studies
Round River is dedicated to conservation strategies that preserve and restore wild places; to that end, we strive to develop and support traditions that sustain wildness.
Round River Conservation Studies is an ecological research and education organization whose goal is the formulation and implementation of conservation strategies that conserve and restore wildness. We recognize that flourishing wildness and wild places are important in, and of, themselves.
Employing the principles of conservation biology, we formulate strategies to give our partner communities, organizations and governments a well-founded scientific basis for their long-term conservation planning efforts.
Round River believes landscapes are powerful educators. Our student programs are designed to involve small groups of students with inspiring people and actual research projects that are finding and implementing solutions to real conservation issues. The student programs contribute significantly to the larger conservation initiatives of Round River and our local partners.
