Doug and Maggie Walker Environmental Conversations

We are proud to partner with the UW Center for Environmental Politics to bring you Environmental Conversations, an annual series of events that feature prominent environmental leaders and practitioners who share their perspective on real world environmental policymaking.

This initiative is known as Doug and Maggie Walker Environmental Conversations to honor the tremendous impact both Doug and Maggie have had on practical aspects of environmental policy locally, regionally, and nationally.
