ONDA's High Desert Speaker Series: Reclaiming Conservation

Save to a List Saved


Bend, NY 97701


February 15
5:30 pm
- 7:00 pm

Kicking off ONDA’s 2022 High Desert Speaker Series is a conversation with filmmaker Faith E. Briggs. For years, Faith would run through the streets of Brooklyn each morning, before turning her attention to run 150 miles through three US National Monuments to assess the stakes of public lands conservation and what is lost if previously protected lands are reduced. This talk will feature a screening of her short film “This Land” and Faith’s personal story to share lessons learned as a budding “conservationist” working through a cultural lens, weaving in reflections on people, entry points to conservation movements, and place.
