Opening on Thursday, October 8 at 7 p.m. at Dixie State University in the Zion Room - Holland Building, St. George, Utah, Locke’s lecture, “Green Postmodernism and the Attempted Hi-jacking of Nature Conservation,” will offer an enlightened perspective on the contemporary language of conservation and its harmful outcomes. Locke will follow-up with “ From Yellowstone to Yukon to Nature Needs Half ~ A Hopeful Agenda for the Future of Wild Nature and Humanity” on Friday, October 9 at 7 p.m. at the O.C.

The 2015 Forum ~ Keeping the Wild ~ will show the strength of the humanities in creating new ways of conserving wild nature by seeing the world beyond ourselves. The forum was inspired by the Reimagine Western Landscapes Initiative, which uses the environmental humanities to inspire the will to act for human and natural world prosperity.
