-Today’s wilderness managers work on a variety of fronts, educating the public, monitoring visitor trends, addressing invasive weeds, even responding to the global challenges of climate change and ocean acidification. As an artist in residence, you may work on projects connected to any of these issues.  Why is this stewardship-based residency appealing to you? How do you see potential for your artwork and community extension to create dialogue about the issues facing our public lands?
