Earth Day: Conserving Locally And Globally

Apr 22, 2015

On this Earth Day, we speak with two conservationists about local and nationwide efforts to protect the planet. We talk about how preserving our air, water and land can be good for business, and the challenges of passing environmental legislation in the United States. 


  • Glenn Prickett is the chief external affairs officer for the Nature Conservancy.
  • Larry Rizzo is a natural history biologist at the Missouri Department of Conservation. 

If you want to hear more from Glenn Prickett, he will be the featured speaker at the University of Saint Mary's Hunger Banquet at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, April 22, in De Paul Library on the  main campus in Leavenworth. The banquet is open the public. Attendees should bring a can of food—preferably protein—for donation. For more information, click here
