Ms. Barbara Brummer, the State Director of The Nature Conservancy, will speak at the March 1 meeting of the Summit Old Guard about the depletion of our natural resources.  Her presentation at the New Providence Municipal Center will show how mankind has relied on nature’s tendency to regenerate natural resources such as water, air and soil nutrients.  Ms. Brummer will illustrate how human civilization has begun to deplete many key resources faster than they are regenerating.

Barbara Brummer has a Ph.D. and had a 30 year corporate career that included executive positions at Johnson & Johnson.  She has encouraged the growth of the Conservancy in areas of the organization’s scientific capacity and has raised funds for land acquisition plus marine and freshwater programs.
