Journalism & Literature as the Voice of Environmental Conservation
In the 19th century, William Cullen Bryant inspired an early American conservation ethic through his poetic verses and compelling essays. He penned nationally read poems and editorials that encouraged Americans to rethink their connection to nature and experience the unique and undeveloped American landscape.
Following Bryant’s lead, The Trustees present a Symposium - a gathering in the spirit of environmental awareness - with a keynote address by the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book, The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History and New Yorker staff writer, Elizabeth Kolbert.
This day's program will focus on how local journalism and the creativity of literature can inspire a modern conservation ethic and call to action in preserving our rustic New England landscapes.
