Guest Speaker, Ron Engel:
Over the course of his life, Ron Engel has been a high school biology teacher, park ranger, community organizer, Unitarian Universalist minister, university professor, and leader in local, national and international conservation movements.  His award winning 1983 book Sacred Sands: the Struggle for Community in the Indiana Dunes, tells the story of how a progressive understanding of the democratic faith influenced the emergence of the new science of ecology, the Chicago Renaissance in the arts and social reform, and the century-long movement to preserve the Indiana Dunes in northwestern Indiana.
