Finding Balance: It's Not Easy Being Green

A passionate advocate for sound environmental stewardship, Claudia has been Reston Association's Natural Resource Manager for over thirty-two years. She spoke about some of the challenges of her position and some ways Reston has worked to control invasive plant species, control animal populations and manage a diversity of opinions about how to do so in her community. She inspired and challenged us to do what each of us can to protect Reston's natural habitat, bio-diversity and charter commitment to environmental stewardship.

Claudia had hoped to show a Youtube video of Wangari Maathai telling the parable of the forest fire and the hummingbird. Technical difficulties got in the way; but those interested can see it here.
