On March 16 from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m., we’ll gather online for this year’s program, "First, Fall in Love: What It Means to Love a Place," presented by noted environmental advocate, moral philosopher, and award-winning author Dr. Kathleen Dean Moore.
With video, music, and excerpts from her two latest books, "Earth’s Wild Music" and "Take Heart: Encouragement for Earth’s Weary Lovers," Dr. Moore will share her insights into how we can respond directly to the moral urgency of climate change by transforming our love of natural places into environmental action.
We will also discuss the complexities of what it means to love a place — whether it’s a hushed forest, a high meadow, or a rocky shore. When so many of our beloved places are threatened by development or decimation, she argues our love must go beyond celebration. To love a place, Dr. Moore suggests, is to pledge yourself to seeing it thrive — to faithfully defend it for all time.
