Science journalist Judith Schwartz keynotes Land Trust’s Annual Meeting

Submitted by the Lopez Community Land Trust

Join the Lopez Community Land Trust for its Annual Meeting at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 25, on Zoom. This year, the keynote speaker is Judith D. Schwartz. Schwartz is an award-winning science journalist, and the renowned author of “Cows Save the Planet” (2013); “Water in Plain Sight” (2016); and most recently, “The Reindeer Chronicles “(2020). She lives and works in Bennington, Vermont.

In her work, Judith explores nature-based solutions to global, environmental and economic challenges. She has drawn on the work of Allan Savory to demonstrate the success of Holistic Management in agriculture, using livestock as a vehicle for large-scale land restoration, and as one method for reducing the impacts of climate change. She has traveled extensively across the world, and studied how working with nature’s own systems in soil and water can mitigate the imminent climate crisis.

At the LCLT Annual Meeting, Judith will be speaking on the topic of Earth Repair, Home & Abroad and offer a Q&A at the end. Around the world, people are finding that even the harshest and most damaged ecosystems can be restored. The growing eco-restoration movement is creating a “toolkit” and body of knowledge about land regeneration. Her presentation will show where ecosystem restoration has succeeded, and explore how lessons learned can be applied to beloved landscapes everywhere.

Her presentation is not to be missed, and we are deeply honored she will share with us! We hope you will join us for the evening. To access the Zoom, please email Breton at or RSVP at
