November 2017 Philosophy Walk (Wildlife Management & Policy)

Part 3 of our 3-Part Fall Philosophy Walk Series on environmental ethics, conservation, preservation, hunting and hunting ethics, governance/policy and community took place on Sunday, November 12th on Merlin Nature Preserve.

The weather was phenomenal — crisp air, shining sun, slight breeze, and crunchy snow!

After making our way up the hill and grabbing our gear, we set off for a fun day of walking, talking and enjoying nature.

Thank you to our Guest Speaker/Co-Philosopher-on-Trail Nick Gevock (Conservation Director for Montana Wildlife Federation).  Thank you also to Michael Chapman & Ross Peter Nelson for photographing and recording our talk.

Our group explored:

  • Wildlife management & conservation policy in the United States (and Montana)
  • Current Issues and concerns (local and abroad)
  • The relationship between hunting and conservation
  • Current and future challenges concerning public lands and conservation
  • Activism and community engagement
  • And more…
