Naturiotism is the patriotic duty to protect landscapes, waters, plants, and animals that have defined the American experience from prehistory to present day. Jason Beale, animal care program director at Penn State University’s Shaver’s Creek Environmental Center, will highlight the work of “Naturiots”, such as Rachel Carson, Rosalie Edge, Teddy Roosevelt, Aldo Leopold, John Muir, and Gifford Pinchot. Discover how their efforts challenged paradigms, inspired generations, and informed the conservation ethic that preserves and protects the unique biological diversity of the United States.
