Join us for a day of education and inclusiveness with author, photographer, and outdoor advocate Dudley Edmondson. Author of Nature is for Everyone: Black and Brown Faces in America’s Wild Places, Mr. Edmondson’s public presentations promote unspoiled wild places. He also shares his quest to make green spaces more diverse.

His talk explores the issues faced by minorities in the great outdoors. It captures the importance of connecting to our conservation heritage for all cultures and races.

We will kick-start the day with a morning walk led by Mr. Edmondson at Prince William Forest Park. Later in the evening, we regroup for a reception/social, with food and non-alcoholic beverages. A book sale and signing lets us extend our conversation, encourages networking and gives people a chance to chat with each other and Mr. Edmondson.
