We’ve got a split show today! First up, Wisconsin’s poet laureate Kimberly Blaeser. Later Patty talks with Carolyn Finney, author of “Black Faces, White Spaces,” which aims to answer why are African Americans so underrepresented when it comes to interest in nature, outdoor recreation, and environmentalism?
Both guests are speakers for this year’s Earth Day Conference at the Monona Terrace. The conference is sponsored by the Nelson Institute at UW-Madison, and will take place on April 25.
