Nov. 12 Audubon – Healing People and the Environment

This Thursday at 7 pm, Audubon Naturalist Society hosts Conservation Cafe: Healing People and the Environment, a virtual evening with three talented professional women, Jeanne Braha, Beattra Wilson, and Caroline Brewer to talk about what’s next for people and the environment.

 National political news can be exciting and overwhelming, but more than anything else points up how important it is that we turn towards the work of healing the hurts in our society and in our relationship with nature and the climate.

Jeanne Braha is Executive Director of Rock Creek Conservancy. She has more than a decade of experience in high-level environmental fundraising and a deep knowledge of the D.C. area non-profit arena, as well as a commitment to equitably connecting people to stewardship opportunities.

Beattra Wilson is a National Urban and Community Forestry Program Manager at the U.S. Forest Service in Washington, DC. She provides program guidance, budget coordination, grants management and strategic planning leadership for national, regional and state urban and community forestry programs.

Caroline Brewer is the Director of Marketing and Communications for ANS, the Chair of the Taking Nature Black Conference, and Managing Editor of the Naturalist Quarterly. She conceived of the Fall 2020 issue of the Naturalist Quarterly, which is dedicated to healing our land and raising our voices with our VOTE.
