FREE film screening and Growing Diversity event at The Field Museum on Saturday, March 19th!  The day will kick off at 10:00 am with a screening of An American Ascent, an award-winning documentary that highlights Expedition Denali, the first all-African American team to climb America's highest peak. One of the expedition's climbers and activist, Scott Briscoe, will be on hand to answer questions and to guide a conversation with the audience about growing diversity in the outdoors.
The film screening will be followed by a panel discussion with alumni from environmental leadership programs in Chicago. This is a great opportunity for youth and adults to learn about near-term environmental pathways and have direct access to next steps (paid opportunities) this summer.
