No doubt, one of the greatest conservation issues of our lifetimes will be global warming.
The Wilderness Society is committed to lessening the effects of climate change. And we hope you’ll join us in being part of the solution!
Join The Wilderness Society March 27 - 29 in Asheville, N.C., for an event that will unite concerned citizens with thinkers from the climate change forefront.
From a town meeting with expert panelists, to intimate sessions with inspired leaders, the Headwaters Gathering will engage citizens from a diversity of backgrounds to bridge the divides that constrain success, and inspire a network of problem solvers and genuine hope.
Don't miss ecological economist Herman Daly, activist Majora Carter and New York Times DOT EARTH's Andrew Revkin!
The Headwaters Gathering, sponsored by The Wilderness Society, Warren Wilson College, and Orion Magazine, takes place in the Southern Appalachian region where the highest biological diversity in North America can be found. This region is at great risk to the impacts of climate change, which could alter every aspect of the region's natural wealth, economy, and community wellbeing.
The event is open to the public. We hope you will join us!
