When one pictures a wilderness advocate, usually a forester doesn't come to mind. That's because foresters are historically associated with developing forests for timber and other resources. And yet four of the eight founders of the Wilderness Society were trained foresters who valued both wilderness protection and sustained-yield forestry. How do we make sense of this paradox? To find out, please join historians Paul Sutter and James Lewis for a lively discussion about this.
Join graphic novelist Shing Yin Khor in a discussion with historian James Lewis about how she drew upon primary and secondary sources about Paul Bunyan for her latest book, the National Book Award finalist, The Legend of Auntie Po. The 60-minute webinar is June 8, 2022, at 1pm EDT/10am PDT over Zoom and is free. Learn more and register at https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_P_hfqrosQi-rj63vlobxtg
