Virtual screening and conversation with Dorinda Dallmeyer, Producer of Cultivating the Wild: William Bartram's Travels

Ever viewed a landscape and wondered what it looked like in the past? Attendees are invited to watch the film Cultivating the Wild prior to the April 13 virtual screening and conversation with Dorinda Dallmeyer, producer of Cultivating the Wild: William Bartram's Travels.

Cultivating the Wild is a one-hour documentary that focuses on six Southerners committed to reclaiming the nature of the South through art, science, and culture. Their inspiration? William Bartram, the 18th century naturalist and America’s first environmentalist. Despite the passage of time, Bartram’s words speak to current issues of critical importance: climate change, environmental degradation, preservation of life-giving ecosystems, and an increasingly urban population. Cultivating the Wild responds to an America hungry to re-connect with the natural world around us, an America increasingly focused on sustaining this planet we call home.

This event is part of UGA's Earth Day 2021 calendar of events. Organized by the EECP (Environmental Ethics Certificate Program). Questions? Email Professor R. Alfred Vick, EECP director, at
