CSVPA co-Chair Edwin Bernbaum presents at the Science for Parks, Parks for Science: The Next Century held from March 25-27, 2015 at UC Berkeley at UC Berkeley, in partnership with the National Park Service and National Geographic Society.
View his talk above on the cultural and spiritual significance of nature in protected area management and governance.
The goal of the summit is to envision and contribute to strategies for science for parks and science using parks for the coming decades by building on the historic linkage between NPS and scientists at leading universities and other organizations around the world. This collaboration will be crucial to nurture the future health of parks and protected areas worldwide and biodiversity conservation. The summit re-dedicates that partnership in a forward-looking way by examining the mission of the National Park Service and its relevancy today, scientific and management implications of this mission in a changing world, social and cultural dimensions for advancing the mission, and the future of science for parks and parks for science.
