Sonoma Land Trust is committed to ensuring more equitable access to the outdoors and is proud to announce a special speaker for Black History Month: James Edward Mills, author of The Adventure Gap: Changing the Face of the Outdoors. “The Adventure Gap” refers to the racial, cultural, and socioeconomic divide between those who spend time in nature and those who do not. A freelance journalist who specializes in telling stories about outdoor recreation, environmental conservation, acts of charitable giving and practices of sustainable living, James Edward Mills of Madison, Wisconsin has worked in the outdoor industry since 1989 as a guide, outfitter, independent sales representative, writer and photographer. His advocacy work focuses on issues of diversity, equity and inclusion in outdoor recreation. Interweaving stories from his own life, Mills will address what we can do about The Adventure Gap.
