Event Description

In a time of extreme  weather and global climate change, the environment is probably one of  the most crucial issues of our time. Moreover, as Sonoma County changes in front of our very eyes, familiar landscapes are fast vanishing. Now maybe it’s time for lovers of the arts and nature to  figure out what we want to preserve and how best to preserve it. 

Moderated by Jonah Raskin, author of A Terrible Beauty, an environmental history of American literature, this dialogue with Iris Dunkle, 2016 Poet Laureate at Sonoma State University, and Laura Watt, Associate Professor and Chair of Environmental Studies and Planning at Sonoma State University, provide a starting point. This is Part 1 of two talks; Part 2 will be on April 19.

Lecture sponsor receives two tickets and credit in the Museum's marketing materials. Lecture sponsorships are tax-deductible.
