Noted professor to speak at Town Hall Theatre on April 24
Friends of Plumas Wilderness invites the public to attend the first event of its 2023 Speaker Series, with Dr. Beth Rose Middleton Manning on Monday, April 24, at the Town Hall Theatre in Quincy. This event is free and open to the public. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and there will be pastries and books available for purchase. Your RSVP is appreciated to help ensure that there is enough seating and refreshments for everyone.
Dr. Beth Rose is a Professor of Native American Studies at UC Davis and Associate Director for Environment and Climate Justice at the UC Davis Institute for the Environment.
With a PhD in Environmental Science, Policy, and Management from UC Berkeley and an undergraduate degree in Nature and Culture from UC Davis, Dr. Beth Rose is an expert in rural environmental justice, Indigenous leadership in climate adaptation, and creative uses of environmental law and policy to support Indigenous land and water access, stewardship, and protection. She has authored two books: Trust in the Land: New Directions in Tribal Conservation, on Native applications of conservation easements, and Upstream: River Histories and Futures, on the history of Indian allotment lands at the headwaters of the California State Water Project.
Wherever there are dams, legacies of disruption and removal exist. Beginning with the North Fork Feather River, Dr. Beth Rose will explore the histories of two dammed rivers in California and Alaska and discuss contemporary movements for restoration, stewardship, and balancing multiple perspectives on river-human relations. The presentation promises to be informative, inspiring, and thought-provoking.
“Please don’t miss this opportunity to learn about this important history and contemporary realities from Dr. Beth Rose,” organizers say. “We look forward to seeing you there!”
