Chestertown, MD — JoAnn Fairchild, Program Manager for Washington College's Center for Environment & Society (CES), will present "Ecology and the Human Spirit" at Custom House, 101 Water Street, on Wednesday, February 6, at 4:30 p.m.
Fairchild received her B.A. in philosophy and M.A. in psychology from Washington College, and now, as a member of the CES team, she works toward the goals of environmental stewardship and preservation of natural resources.
While serving as tourism director of Kent County from 1997 to 2001, Fairchild coordinated the National Scenic Byway and Maryland Heritage Area initiatives. From 2001 to 2002, she promoted conservation and sustainability while working as development director for the Maine Island Trail Association. From 2003 to 2004, she helped to market energy-efficient homes for the people of Santiago de Chile.
An avid nature lover—she's involved in hiking, sailing, bicycling, skiing ("any activity in the great outdoors," she said) — Fairchild embodies a personal philosophy of caring for the environment while benefiting spiritually from keeping active in the natural world.
Admission to "Ecology and the Human Spirit" is free and open to the public.
