A Sense of Place with Patuxent Riverkeeper Fred Tutman.

Patuxent Riverkeeper Fred Tutman hosts a discussion about how class, race &
sense of place shape our individual approach to environmentalism & conservation
values. The evening will feature a short media presentation and a community
dialogue about how to build strong, compassionate communities & a more inclusive
environmental movement around a broad sense of shared place.

Fred also worked as an activist on the Patuxent for over 20 years and is a recipient of numerous
awards and recognitions for his work on behalf of environmental causes and issues in Maryland. He also
serves on a variety of Boards, Task Forces and Commissions related to the work of protecting the
Patuxent and the natural environment.

Co-sponsors of the monthly film are Beaverdam Creek Watershed Watch Group, CHEARS (Chesapeake
Education, Arts & Research Society), Prince George’s Peace & Justice Coalition and Green Vegan
Networking. For more information, contact Susan Barnett of BCWWG at .
