I have been dreaming about this gathering for some time now and it’s really exciting to see it all coming together. My main goal for this event is to bring people together who have a burning passion for wildlife and create a space where we can inspire and uplift each other to feel more connected, more aware and more proactive about protecting wildlife and nurturing our connection to all beings. We have a great group of people coming to speak including; Fiona Buckley – owner of Rathvinden Farm, Michael Dax – National Outreach for Defenders of Wildlife, Erin Edge – Rockies and Plains Representative for Defenders of Wildlife, Susan Eirich – Founder and Executive Director of Earthfire Institute and Jesse Tufte – Resilient Ranchlands Coordinator for the Western Sustainability Exchange. It turned out to be a very well-rounded group of people from all walks of life. I’m sure it will stimulate great conversation! We also have a very inspired group of artists who will share their interpretations of living with wildlife here in Montana. I will be updating this blog with more tidbits about the artists and speakers.
