Welcome to the BeWild Speaker Series, four talks that will inspire the everyday adventurer to explore, discover and conserve the wild spaces of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Through incredible stories of passion and adventure you will be inspired to get outside, seek adventure, connect with nature and be inspired to care for the wild places where we play.
August 12: Dave Showalter
A member of the International League of Conservation Photographers, Dave's photo credits include Outside, Outdoor Photographer, High Country News, Backpacker, Nature Conservancy, among others. Through evocative prose and images, his Sage Spirit campaign is helping people to understand the plight of endangered Gunnison sage grouse, and the complex issues threatening the sagebrush sea.
Join Dave on a tour through the most iconic--and also the most imperiled--landscape in the American West. You'll encounter rare birds, stately pronghorn antelope, brash bighorn sheep and shy burrowing owls, and more than thirty different species of sagebrush.
