An Evening with Tony Hiss: Protecting Half the Land to Heal the Earth - Livestream 

Thursday, May 25, 2023

7:00 p.m.- 8:30 p.m.


Western New York is a wonderful  place to live. It’s home to a vast amount of fresh water, our forests teem with incredible wildlife, and we are the stewards of some of the world’s most fertile soils. But the region has also witnessed tremendous sprawl over the past fifty years, resulting in the development of large stretches of land. 

Thankfully, communities across the country are beginning to recognize the critical importance of saving our forests, meadows, wetlands, lakes, and rivers for the health and wellbeing of every living creature on the planet. Working together, we can save land for future generations, including here in Western New York.


We are thrilled to host world-renowned author Tony Hiss, one of the strongest advocates for land protection in the United States, to discuss his seminal book Rescuing the Planet: Protecting Half the Land to Heal the Earth. 


This event is part of our community’s efforts to save the Floating Fen in Chautauqua County and create the Western New York Wildway. This event is free and open to the public, but donations to save the Floating Fen are always welcome. 

This event is sponsored by Renee Bush; the Bank of East Aurora, a wedding venue and boutique hotel; the Biology and Environmental Science Programs at Canisius College; the Chautauqua Institution; Mark P. and Deborah E. Kisker; and the Nature Sanctuary Society of Western New York.
