Aimee Roberson is a citizen of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma and of Chickasaw descent. Roberson is a lifelong student of Earth’s wisdom, and currently serves as the Southwest Regional Director for American Bird Conservancy. Sharing compelling stories from her life, career and culture, Roberson addresses environmental, climate and human rights crises through the continuance of Indigenous lifeways and bird conservation. She is committed to reciprocity, community and environmental stewardship, and partners with people and all our relations to ensure that native grasses grow and rivers continue to flow. Roberson provides leadership to conservation partnerships with emphasis in the southwestern United States and northern Mexico — co-creating a vision; integrating cultural values and ecological knowledge with science for meaningful decision making; and implementing shared strategies for stewarding wildlife, water, and ecosystems. 
This event is presented in partnership with Bird Conservancy of the Rockies with promotional support from Denver Audubon.
