Edward P. Bass Distinguished Lecture 

Bicycling, Birding and #BLM Across America in a Summer of Chaos

“During summer 2020 I undertook a 76-day, ~3800 mile bicycle trip across the United States from the Atlantic to the Pacific oceans, encountering extraordinary people, landscapes, and birds as I wheeled my way through towns on the brink of collapse, Native American lands, and vast private ranches. Witnessing people’s reactions to #BlackLivesMatter and other pressing issues taught me about the forces causing division in this country and how we can mend them.”

Scott Edwards, Professor of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University
