How can we re-engage with nature and protect it at the same time? What in nature inspires you? What can be done to remove barriers so everyone can feel connected to the wild? This free live virtual event will be presented on KUOWs YouTube and Facebook channels Thursday, May 13 at 4 p.m. and will include questions from our audience.
