Join the Sacred Citizenship Group and the Friends of Wisdom Prairie for a dinner and lecture on The Climate Crisis and Eco-spirituality led by David Barnhill and Daniel Vimont.

Dr. David Barnhill will offer a Buddhist meditation on the climate crisis. He is retired and served as director of the Environmental Studies Program at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh from 2003-2015.
