Join The Explorers Club on Monday, November 6th to learn about the conservation efforts taking place to protect and preserve one of the fastest disappearing ecosystems in the world – the American prairie.

According to the World Wildlife Fund, the Great Plains of the United States and Canada have lost a greater proportion of intact grassland in recent years than the Brazilian Amazon has lost rainforest. But hope is not lost.

American Prairie has been working for the last 20 years to conserve this unique and irreplaceable ecosystem by securing, connecting, and rewilding a mix of 3.2 million acres of public and private land. Alison Fox and American Prairie are pushing to revive not only the sprawling grass prairies that once defined central North America, but the countless species that call those plains home.

Join Alison at The Explorers Club to hear about American Prairie’s vision and the progress that has been made to bring it to reality.

 


Streaming live here on explorers.org, our YouTube Channel, and our Facebook Live — Monday, November 6th at 7:00 pm ET.

RESERVATIONS

This will be an in-person lecture at Explorers Club Headquarters.

In-person tickets are $15 for Members, and $30 for the General Public.

Check-in will begin at 6:00 pm, with a beer and wine reception from 6:00 – 7:00 pm

Speakers

Alison Fox

Alison is the CEO of American Prairie, a nonprofit with the vision of rewilding and sharing with the public a fully functioning shortgrass prairie ecosystem in north central Montana. With hundreds of thousands of acres already under the organization’s management, American Prairie works with scientists, neighboring landowners and other collaborators to restore the full suite of biodiversity that comprises a grassland ecosystem, manages a conservation herd of bison, and provides thousands of visitors each year the opportunity to connect with nature on a truly grand scale.
Ms. Fox has led the organization as CEO since February 2018 and had various leadership and management roles with the organization since 2007, including communications, marketing and branding, institutional partnerships and philanthropy. She holds an MBA from the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University, where she focused on marketing and nonprofit management, and a BA in History from Dartmouth College. She is a member of the Big Sky Chapter of the Young Presidents Organization, Inc. (YPO) and the Advisory Board of William & Mary’s Institute for Integrative Conservation.
