Guest Speaker Les Purce

We are excited to announce that Les Purce will be speaking at our Virtual Gala!

Dr. Purce has a long history of service to the environment and people of the PNW – including being the first Black elected official in the state of Idaho as a city councilman and then mayor of Pocatello, serving as president of Evergreen College for over 15 years, and most recently, co-chairing the Southern Resident Killer Whale Task force as appointed by Governor Inslee.

Check out our community mural, made by the 2021 Gala attendees based on the prompt:

How did the environment help you find comfort, health, and community this past year?”
