Wes Wallace is  member of the Orange/Chatham Sierra Group and  of the North Carolina Sierra Political Committee. In a fast paced presentation he’ll discuss the current status of environmental politics on the local, state and national levels.  He’ll review how the political status of the environment got so bad so quickly in our state.  Finally, he’ll focus on the unique and real opportunity that Sierrans and their allies have to turn environmental politics around in the upcoming 2018 elections. 


 

Wes is a long time member of Sierra, an emergency physician at UNC Chapel Hill School of Medicine.  He teaches the wilderness first aid course for the Sierra outings leaders, is an eager outdoors person and a former river guide on the Texas Rio Grande River.
