CAN! Homegrown National Park Movement
March 12, 2023 @ 9:45 am - 10:45 am
Famous ecologist E. O. Wilson proposed a collective action project he called “half-earth” in order to care for the planet and save the earth’s biodiversity. Wilson said, “…only by setting aside half the planet in reserve, or more, can we save the living part of the environment and achieve the stabilization required for our own survival." The Homegrown National Park movement is, perhaps, the kind of collective action Wilson might have had in mind.
Come hear Jean Ponzi describe the movement, provide examples right here in St. Louis, and tell you how you can be a part of this nature-saving movement, whether you have access to your own big backyard, a small patio, or an outdoor business or school space.
