Emily Ford to share her Boundary Waters experiences
Community members are invited to attend the first event of the 2022-23 Alworth Center for the Study of Peace and Justice lecture series featuring Emily Ford, Head Gardener at Glensheen and trailblazer and the St. Scholastica Justice Choir, on Thursday, Sept. 22 at 7:30 p.m.
Emily Ford is the Head Gardener at Glensheen Mansion in Duluth and a through-hiker and paddler whose adventures on Wisconsin’s Ice Age Trail and in Minnesota’s Boundary Waters have attracted widespread attention. Ford will speak on her experiences in the Boundary Waters and help us kick off an exciting year for the Alworth Center for the Study of Peace and Justice lecture series. The 2022-23 series theme is “Resilience: Urgent Conversations, Local Voices.”
All lectures are free, open to the public and begin both virtually online and in person in the Mitchell Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. CST.
The Alworth Center for the Study of Peace and Justice lectures are sponsored by the Alworth Center for the Study of Peace and Justice at The College of St. Scholastica and funded in part by the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation, the DeWitt and Caroline Van Evera Foundation and the Mary C. Van Evera Foundation Endowed Fund in memory of William Van Evera. With additional support from the Royal D.
