Investing in Conservation: The Intersection of Policy, Recreation, Business, and Land Preservation

Join the two Outdoors Clubs at Harvard Business School and Harvard Kennedy School for a panel discussion on the intersection of public policy, business, and grass-roots advocacy in the modern U.S. conservation movement. Panelists for the evening include Tommy Caldwell, American climber and adventurer; Erik Murdock, Access Fund Policy Director; Bethany Lebowitz, Founder of Brown Girls Climb; Katie Wallace, Director of Social & Environmental Impact at New Belgium Brewing; Estee Rivera Murdock, Rocky Mountain Conservancy Executive Director; with Rand Wentworth, Louis Bacon Senior Fellow in Environmental Leadership and HKS Adjunct Lecturer in Public Policy serving as moderator for the evening.

Across the United States public lands are facing unprecedented challenges ranging from the loosening regulations and carving up of protected landscapes for resource extraction, to the cutting of operating budgets necessary for the stewardship of some of the United States most cherished landscapes. At a time when participation in outdoor recreation and visitation to public lands are on the rise what is being done and what more can be done to ensure that our conserved natural landscapes remain intact and accessible?
