Running in Place: Why Race Matters in Outdoor Recreation Spaces-Andrea Armstrong, Ph.D.

January 14, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

In this talk, we will explore why people of color participate in outdoor recreation activities less often than white people. We will also consider recent research on why people of color feel less welcome on recreation trails in the Lehigh Valley.

Dr. Armstrong is an Assistant Professor of Environmental Science & Studies at Lafayette College.

Typically, our Speaker Series events are held in-person, but this year we are going to be doing things a little bit differently. Speakers will be conducting their talks “virtually” through Zoom. Following registration, you will be provided with a link for a Zoom conference, which will give you access to the event at the scheduled date and time.

If you are familiar with and already have Zoom installed on your device, then you are all set. If you have never used Zoom before, no worries! Upon clicking the link, Zoom will automatically install itself and you’ll be ready to go! Zoom is a small, safe application that allows you to participate in video conferencing events such as this one! While a camera and microphone are not essential to view the presentation, they do make interaction with the speaker possible during question and answer sessions.

We hope to see virtually!
