Climate change is one of the biggest challenges humanity has faced. Climate Solutions, now open at The Wild Center, asks: What can we do about it?

Encounter locals who are making extraordinary contributions to shift the narrative on climate. You’ll encounter farmers making old ways new again, storytellers who help us understand science through art, builders who ensure function is as elegant as form and environmental experts who are keeping a close eye on the ecosystems that surround us. You’ll also meet those who are ensuring voices often unheard—those of Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC)—are included in these conversations.

Women in the Forest of History: Renderings of Adirondack Wilderness

July 12, 2022, 7 – 8 pm, Free

The voices of women are often silent in the vast history of the Adirondacks, but women have always lived here and considered it their home. Beginning with Indigenous women that inhabited the Adirondacks for countless generations prior to colonization to enslaved and free women that settled the region and ran households, farms, and social movements, women were involved in shaping the Adirondack environment and communities.

This session will examine the lives of several women from the 1700s to the 2000s, the natural and social obstacles they faced, and the meanings and inspirations they found in the Adirondack wilderness. Recovering their experiences and hearing their voices enriches the collective landscape.
