Women have historically been thought of as caretakers. By tending to their households and families, providing nourishment, and cultivating the land, they shaped the places that we called home. Many of today’s women have upended this traditional role, moving it into the professional scientific, engineering, and political worlds, acting as stewards of the earth and tenders of community health and wellbeing. Join us as we welcome a panel of local women who have put their knowledge to work as caretakers of the environment. Panelists include Catherine Werner, an environmental lawyer and St. Louis’ first sustainability director; Marjorie Melton, with the U.S. Green Building Council and CEO of M3 Engineering; and Danielle Lee, an outreach scientist and blogger whose work focuses on urban ecology.

Presented in conjunction with the History Museum gallery installation, Homelands: How Women Made the West, on display at the Missouri History Museum, October 17, 2010 – January 15, 2011.
