Thursday’s #LeopoldConference program recognized that for Leopold’s vision of a land ethic to be successful, it will need to embrace, and be embraced by diverse constituencies across the U.S. and beyond. Thursday afternoon’s program closed with a panel that focused on inclusion in conservation. The panel included Nicole Jackson (environmental educator and urban naturalist), Leslie Weldon (Chief of the National Forest System), and Cynthia Martinez (Chief of the National Wildlife Refuge System). The discussion was moderated by Drew Lanham (Distinguished Alumni Professor and Certified Wildlife Biologist in the School of Agriculture, Forestry, and Environmental Sciences at Clemson University in South Carolina).
