The Department of Planning and Landscape Architecture is proud to be a cosponsor of the Jordahl Public Lands Lecture, named after former URPL faculty member Harold “Bud” Jordahl. We invite you to join us for a conversation with Yosemite National Park Ranger, Shelton Johnson, who will be joining us virtually to discuss the stories we tell and how those stories are critical to better diversity, equity, and inclusion in our national parks.

Johnson will be joined by moderator and Nelson Institute community partnership liaison, James Edward Mills. Together, they will lead us in an exploration of the ways in which untold stories challenge perceptions of history and how that reconfigures our vision of the present.

You can join us in-person to watch the virtual lecture, which will be followed by a networking session. Please note that tickets to the in-person event will be limited to 150 people, but everyone is welcome to join us virtually via Zoom.
