DEI Speaker Series: Dr. Elizabeth Perry

July 20 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Mark your calendars for the second speaker in our DEI Speaker Series.  On July 20 at 2:30 p.m., join us for a virtual conversation with Dr. Elizabeth Perry as part of a special board meeting of the board of commissioners.  Our second speaker is an assistant professor of Protected Areas and Natural Resources Recreation Management, in the Department of Community Sustainability at Michigan State University.

During a keynote address followed by Q&A Dr. Perry, she will share how climate change is altering global systems, including parks and their resources worldwide and in our backyards. This creates challenges for management of these places, the recreation opportunities available, the visitor experience, and equity considerations. In this talk, Dr. Elizabeth Perry will define and illustrate climate change impacts across these park conditions and invite discussion on navigating the impacts as individuals, communities, and park stewards.
