  16. 16. One final paragraph of advice: do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am -- a reluctant enthusiast, a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it’s still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, the lovely, mysterious, and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much: I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound men and women with their hearts in a safe deposit box, and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this: you will outlive the bastards. -- Edward Abbey

  19. 19. LINKING HUMAN & WILDLIFE ECOSYSTEMS Working to protect and restore native wildlife and habitats is essential for ecological health. Learn about designing effective citizen action initiatives and interactions with government. Hear about opportunities for citizens to carry their environmental analysis into the practical world of government and business. Mary Griffin Commissioner, Massachusetts Fish, Wildlife & Environmental Law Zygmunt Plater Professor, Boston College; Author Bruce Winn President, Berkshire Environmental Action Team EMAILS: plater@bc.edu, mary.griffin@state.ma.us, Bruce@thebeatnews.org SUGGESTED CONTENT This session provides a look at human and wildlife ecosystems and to that end I suggest the following…. *Mary: Describe your role and department at the state level (fish and game, marine fisheries, ecological restoration, fisheries & wildlife, fishing and boating) and how you work with organizations to manage human and wildlife ecosystems. (15-17 minutes) Zygmunt: Describe your role in education and environmental law and the diverse stakeholders you work with with to defend ecosystems. (15-17 minutes) Bruce: Describe your role in local efforts and how you work with diverse stakeholders to manage local ecosystems. (15-17 minutes) Also feel free to talk about emerging trends and initiatives that are important to you. THE ESSENTIAL QUESTION This may already be included in your presentation, but is worth reiterating that embedded in each presentation should be an answer to this question: What green career information are you sharing with regard to your field of work? You may describe stakeholders you interact with; this may help the audience see the diverse stakeholders in the green economy. You might also provide current trends and strategies in your field. PRESENTATION TIPS Looking for more presentation ideas? Here’s content to consider: a brief overview, an outline with highlights, goals, 2-3 case studies, results, interesting facts, an interesting story, photos, graphics, etc.
