The Gila Centennial Speaker Series: Live from Silver City, New Mexico

The history of the Gila is a microcosm of a long-standing debate: what is wilderness? Does Wilderness–big W–even exist in the way that Aldo Leopold imagined? When additional voices are included, namely those of Indigenous cultures that have lived in the region for thousands of years, how is the conversation reframed? These are the questions at the center of the upcoming Gila Centennial speaker series in Silver City, New Mexico. Join us to learn from the diversity of wilderness perspectives and to challenge your own understanding of land and wild spaces. Click to learn more!

Restoring the Sacred in Leopold’s Borderlands: Scientists and Indigenous Spiritual Leaders Safeguarding Ceremonial Plants in the Southwest

For the first 15 years of his career, Aldo Leopold worked in the arid landscapes of the Southwest. This region is rich in culture and biodiversity, and both have been impacted by settlement, development, and a changing climate. Drawing from decades of preserving place-based Southwestern agricultural plants and his cross-cultural work with Indigenous communities, Gary Paul Nabhan will describe the efforts of scientists and Indigenous leaders to safeguard the ceremonial plants that are essential to both humans and ecosystems in the Southwest.
