Conservation Alliance Breakfast
Thursday, January 24, 2008
The Marriott, Salt Lake City
Featured Speaker: Dr. John Francis, The Planetwalker
￼About Dr. John Francis:
John Francis, Ph.D., is known the world over as the Planetwalker. In 1971, John witnessed an oil spill in San Francisco Bay. The effects of the spill compelled John to stop using motorized vehicles. Several months later, he took a vow of silence. His non-motorized lifestyle lasted 22 years, and the silence 17. During that time John walked across the United States earning a B.A at Southern Oregon State College, an M.S. in Environmental Studies at the University of Montana and a Ph.D. in land resources at the University of Wisconsin. He later sailed and walked through the Caribbean and then walked the length of South America. John will speak on his journey, his unique perspective on environment, and how we each can make a difference in our world. Dr. Francis is the author of Planetwalker: How to Change Your World One Step at A Time.
The Conservation Alliance is thrilled that Dr. Francis will share his story at our Breakfast in January.
