Conservation and Stewardship Amongst a Growing Human Population

Environmental Speaker Series

Brought to you by:
WWU College of the Environment
in partnership with the WWU Alumni Association


Whatcom Land Trust is a non-profit primarily working in Whatcom County for over 35 years. With a growing human population and concerns around competing land uses, the Land Trust seeks to fill the needed gap in protecting and stewarding agricultural, wildlife habitat, park, and scenic lands for future generations. This presentation will scratch the surface of the Land Trust's local strategy in long-term land protection and stewardship in a changing climate, and share how you can get involved.

More information about the speaker series is available here, and past Environmental Speaker Series recordings are available here.

We are excited that we will be live-streaming from a WWU classroom for the webinar for our off-campus audience. Due to the pandemic, only WWU students will be in-person for the presentation but we look forward to welcoming you all to class virtually.

We have moved to a new event system! We encourage you to create a new profile and login when you register for this and future events, however, you are not required to login to register. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us at alumni@wwu.edu and we will help you update your information. Thank you for joining us, and we'll see you soon!
