Speaker will discuss relationship between people and landscapes

SALISBURY — The Catawba College Center for the Environment, with the Catawba College department of environment & sustainability, will sponsor a program dealing with the relationship between people and landscapes, especially marginalized people and wild places.

“The Wilderness Society in the 21st Century: New Concepts of Wilderness, Wildness, Inclusion and Belonging,” will be Thursday, Oct. 24, at 6:30 p.m. with Dr. Alexandra Sutton Lawrence, Southeast regional program director of The Wilderness Society, as speaker. It will be held in room 300 at the Center for the Environment.

Lawrence’s dissertation at Duke University, “Conservation in the Human Landscape,” analyzed case studies of leadership, management and finance in global environmental initiatives. She received a bachelor of science degree in biology from Howard University and a master of science in wildlife and fisheries sciences from Texas A&M University.

Sutton will describe the pairing of the work of The Wilderness Society Landscape Initiative to create a continental analysis of climate-resilient regions and high-biodiversity regions with the general public to build lasting, authentic relationships with African-American, Native-American, Latinx and blended ethnic communities.

For more information, you may contact the Center for the Environment at centerforenv@catawba.edu or call 704-637-4791.
