Dudley Edmondson: Outdoor Exposure, Learning, & Living

September 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Land Trust of North Alabama and Randolph School invite you to an evening with photographer, videographer, and conservationist Dudley Edmondson, who is working to bring all people into the outdoors. Mr. Edmondson is the author of Black & Brown Faces in America’s Wild Places.  His topic for the evening will be the benefits of outdoor exposure, learning, and living. This event will be held September 8, 2022, starting at 6:00 PM, in the Community Room of the North Branch of the Huntsville – Madison County Public Library located at 3011 Sparkman Drive, HuntsvilleAL 35810.  The event is free and open to the public.

Mr. Edmondson has been immersed in the effort to help the conservation sector become more inclusive. He is one of the first to highlight the involvement of African Americans in the public lands system. Unsatisfied with the numbers of people who looked like him among those he encountered in his outdoor pursuits, Mr. Edmondson set out to create a set of out- door role models for the nation’s African American community by writing his landmark book, Black & Brown Faces in America’s Wild Places (AdventureKeen Publications 2006) In 2010, Dudley’s book and conservation work landed him an invitation to the White House for the signing of America’s Great Outdoors Initiative.

You can also join Mr. Edmondson for a hike on Monte Sano Nature Preserve on Saturday, September 10 at 9 AM with Black Kids Adventures. Find more details and sign up here.
