To provide a foundation for common language and bridge the range of disciplines represented by our trainees, we provide our incoming cohort with a common core book. This summer’s book is “Mississippi Solo“ by Eddy Harris. We hope this selection will foster deep discussion on cultural connections to water and nature, the importance of diverse voices and values in environmental work, and what it means to push our limits of physical and emotional abilities. We are excited to announce that in partnership with EarthLab and College of the Environment, we will host the author to campus in October for a screening of his film, “River to the Heart,” followed by a moderated Q&A. This event will be in person, free and open to the public – save your seat here!
