Exposure to Love to Action: Mobilizing Advocates for our Earth with Audrey Peterman
The public lands system in the U.S. is something that all Americans can be proud of. Join us on Earth Day to learn more about the often-mischaracterized history of preserving outdoor spaces in the U.S., how physical distancing has brought us closer to our Earth and what that means for the future of our planet.

Our keynote speaker is Audrey Peterman, a leader in the movement to engage more Americans of color in the enjoyment, care and protection of our green spaces.

She has written several books including “From My Jamaican Gully to the World,” which documents her personal journey to environmental advocacy, “Our True Nature: Finding a Zest for Life in the National Park System,” a travel guide to the National Park System, and “Legacy on the Land: A Black Couple Discovers Our National Inheritance and Tells Why Everyone Should Care,” which she co-authored with her husband, Frank.

Her achievements have been recognized with awards including the Environmental Hero Award, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Outstanding Citizen Advocate Award and the Lifetime Achievement Award from Outdoor Afro. Thanks to her efforts as part of the Next100 Coalition, President Obama issued a Presidential memorandum in 2017 promoting diversity and inclusion in our national parks, forests and other public lands and waters.

This keynote address is part of the Florida Museum of Natural History's month-long Earth Day Celebration. The celebration continues with the Florida Springs Film Series: Biodiversity on Tuesday, April 27. Details and registration are here https://www.floridamuseum.ufl.edu/event/springs-biodiversity/
