Conservation in the 21st Century: Lessons from the Driftless Area to the World

February 14, 2023 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm



Presented by Curt Meine, Senior Fellow, Aldo Leopold Foundation/Center for Human and Nature;  Adjunct Associate Professor, UW-Madison

The Driftless Area of the Upper Midwest is distinguished by its unique natural and cultural history.  The region’s rugged landscape of ridges and valleys has presented special environmental challenges.  The region has also fostered important innovations to meet those challenges.  From the lifeways of the Native peoples of the Driftless, to early efforts in community-based conservation, to advancing organic agriculture, to enhancing climate resilience, these efforts hold important lessons for the wider world in addressing the critical environmental needs of the 21st century.
