SEJ Webinar: Covering Climate Solutions — Indigenous Communities and Nature-Based Approaches

Join us virtually at 1:00 p.m. ET for a discussion on how Indigenous peoples practiced "sustainable management" efforts long before modern society began talking about conservation, environmental protection or climate change and how their voices can greatly enrich environmental reporting. How can environmental journalists best incorporate Indigenous voices into their climate change and sustainability stories without misrepresenting intent or disrespecting cultures?

Following Nature on a Transformative Journey Away From the Mean Streets of D.C.

As a young man, Rodney Stotts knew plenty about drugs, guns and poverty and little about the other kinds of wildlife in his hometown. A chance offer of a job cleaning up Washington, D.C.’s Anacostia River set him on the path to becoming a master falconer — despite racist resistance — and a mentor to others who share his inner-city roots. BookShelf’s Jennifer Weeks reviews Stotts’ memoir, “Bird Brother.”
