Tuesday Night Keynote Address and Welcome

alt=Robert Moor is the author of On Trails, a book that sheds new light on a wealth of age-old questions: How does order emerge out of chaos? How did animals first crawl forth from the seas and spread across continents? How has humanity’s relationship with nature and technology shaped world around us? And, ultimately, how does each of us pick a path through life?  Join us while Mr. Moor takes us on a stroll through the trails of time.



Thursday Lunch Plenary

Growing up as the only sister to eight brothers in her hometown of Richmond, California, Teresa Baker was determined not to be outdone; spending time in the outdoors became her passion. Fast-forward 30 years - the outdoors is still her passion; the only difference is the stakes are higher.  Teresa now spends time outdoors engaging communities of color in outdoor spaces in the hope of fostering a shared sense of responsibility for environmental protection that will benefit all of mankind. She works with outdoor agencies, organizations, and retailers on ways to welcome a more diverse audience to their boards, staff, and programs.  Teresa will share a video, Showing the Diversity In Our Wild Spaces, and lead a short talk with time for questions on the importance of diversity and inclusion in outdoor agencies.
