Event Description

For many of us, it is hard to turn compassion into action simply because we don’t know where to start. Plants are more than something to harvest food or fibers from. We value their beauty and want to preserve plant communities, but how do we take that level of respect and turn it into impactful action? Join us as we explore this question with leaders who work to remind us of the sacredness of plants, build awareness about plants, be present with plants and protect plants. This is a two-hour virtual program via Zoom facilitated by August Stolba of Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha) with a keynote address by Paul Moss, founder of The Plant Initiative. It will feature a panel discussion with Blackfoot Inipi Water Pourer Kerry Batteau, Trees Forever Founder Shannon Ramsay, Nature and Forest Therapy Guide Emelia Sautter, and Center for Democratic and Environmental Rights Executive Director Mari Margil. The cost is $20 for this Zoom keynote and panel discussion. For more information or to register, contact Prairiewoods at or 319-395-6700.
