17th Annual Earth Conference - Honoring Biodiversity

Saturday, November 5, 2022
9:00 AM - 3:00 PM

In this conference we will look at examples of the strength of diversity in nature and in human society. We will then explore the long ignored wisdom of the Lakota People and learn how these teachings can help us find our way back to a healthy, balanced interconnection with nature.

This year’s Conference will be held in person with a virtual streaming option available. Virtual participants will be able to interact with speakers via chat and with each other in breakout rooms.
