New Mexico Wilderness Alliance is partnering with Wilderness Watch to host noted author, ecologist, and conservation activist, George “Geo” Wuerthner, for a Wilderness Watch presentation and Letter Writing Workshop.

Geo is traveling the country to raise awareness about wilderness and the threats facing it. Geo is a well-known writer on conservation issues, having published 38 books and innumerable articles, essays, and opinion pieces. He’s given hundreds of presentations around the country on wilderness, wildfire, livestock grazing, wildlife protection, and other public land issues. Geo is also a wildlands explorer extraordinaire, having hiked and paddled in more than 400 designated wilderness areas and more than 180 national park units.

This event will be hosted on November 6 at 6:00pm in Santa Fe at the REI Community Room, and November 7 at 7:00pm in Albuquerque at the UNM Student Union Building.
