An update from our last (4/14) announcement: we currently have five participants for this workshop and all are traveling from out of state. These people include the curriculum manager for the Humane Society (based in DC), a student and activist from Haverford College, PA, a Ph.D. student and National Science Foundation fellow from New York, and a therapist and consultant from Oregon.
The point is that by joining in, you’ll learn not only from two excellent professors, an influential scholar of environmental justice and a Nobel Prize laureate, but also from an accomplished and diverse group of fellow participants. Such a small class size with these great professors is also a rare opportunity.
So, please see below for more details and consider registering *BY MAY 14*:

The University of Montana announces its celebrated 4th Annual Environmental Ethics Institute from June 8th – June 13th in Missoula, MT. This year’s institute will be co-taught by Christopher Preston and Andrew Light around three themes: fire, restoration, and wilderness in an age of climate change.
The six days of instruction will involve three half-day field trips. These will include a visit to the Pattee Canyon forest thinning project at Missoula’s urban/wildland interface, the Milltown Dam Superfund restoration site, and the Rattlesnake Wilderness and National Recreation Area. Guides on these field trips will include Dr. Steve Running, contributor to the 2007 Nobel Prize Winning IPCC report on climate change and Dr. Robin Saha, contributor to the 2007 “Toxic Waste and Race at 20 (1987-2007)” report.
The three weeks of online study and six day workshop is open to students, faculty, and interested professionals of all kinds. However, the workshop is particularly suitable for educators who are seeking a grounding in the foundations of environmental ethics and its most pressing challenges today.
