The Center of Biological Diversity is teaming up with the Thoreau Society for a special
Earth Day event to discuss resistance and extinction.

We'll explore the works of the beloved 19th-century naturalist and philosopher
Henry David Thoreau (July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862) and how they relate to today's fight
to end the extinction crisis.

The Thoreau Society's mission is to preserve Thoreau's legacy and advocate for the preservation of the natural world, including Walden Pond and surrounding areas.
The Thoreau Society exists to stimulate interest in Thoreau's life and works, challenging
all to live a deliberate, considered life.


This Earth Day discussion will include:

--Rochelle Johnson, President of Thoreau Society

--Michael Frederick, Executive Director of Thoreau Society

--Laura Walls, author of "Henry David Thoreau: A Life"

--Peter Galvin, Director of Programs & Founder, Center for Biological Diversity

--Tierra Curry, Senior Scientist at Center for Biological Diversity

At the Center for Biological Diversity, we believe that the welfare of human beings is deeply linked to nature — to the existence in our world of a vast diversity of wild animals and plants.

Because diversity has intrinsic value, and because its loss impoverishes society, we work to secure a future for all species, great and small, hovering on the brink of extinction. We do so through science, law and creative media, with a focus on protecting the lands, waters and climate that species need to survive.

We want those who come after us to inherit a world where the wild is still alive.
