TEDxBoulder – Recreation and the Future of the Conservation Movement

In September, 2012 I had the honor of speaking at TEDxBoulder. My talked focused on the role of human powered recreation in the future of the conservation movement. The big, traditional organizations (such as The Nature Conservancy, the Sierra Club and the Wilderness Society) are concerned that as their membership ages, younger generations aren’t refilling the ranks. I believe that recreation has a crucial role to play, thought both the conservation and recreation communities need to adapt to remain relevant.
