WeConservePA: May 17 - Attempting To Understand The Disconnect Between African Americans And The Outdoors

WeConservePA will host an online program May 17 on Attempting To Understand The Disconnect Between African Americans And The Outdoors from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The program will feature Dudley Edmondson, a photographer, author, filmmaker and presenter, who connects the dots on why African Americans and others from BIPOC [Black, Indigenous and People of Color] communities are underrepresented in the outdoors.

His passion is nature and getting People of Color outdoors.

Unsatisfied with the numbers of people who looked like him among those he encountered in his outdoor pursuits, Edmondson set out to create a set of outdoor role models for the African American community by writing his landmark book, Black & Brown Faces in America’s Wild Places, featuring luminaries in the environmental and outdoor recreation fields. 

He has also been immersed in the effort to help the conservation sector become more inclusive.

Edmondson’s photography has been featured in galleries and nearly 100 publications around the world. His most recent book is What’s that Flower? A Beginner’s Guide to Wildflowers.
