Drawing on both personal and professional experiences, these four conservationists will reflect on early experiences that shaped their personal conservation ethic and discuss how this ethic drives their work today as scientists, educators, and mentors in their fields. These panelists will also discuss various successes and challenges of mentoring aspiring leaders, including models for volunteerism, youth engagement programs, citizen science and outreach projects, and pathways for becoming a professional scientist. Front Porch Conversations honor the legacy of Olaus and Mardy Murie. Olaus and Mardy hosted some of the nation’s most influential conservationists on their front porch--Teton Science Schools carries on the tradition by gathering on Mardy’s front porch to discuss current conservation issues with local and visiting experts. These events are free and open to the public. If weather permits all conversations will be held outdoors.
