    Topic overview:

    The United States is in one of the most peculiar times in history where we are finally seeing the lasting benefit of the hard work of those who have come before us to set a precedent of
    preserving natural resources. But are natural resources still being conserved with the thousands of projects that we see pop year after year in our own communities? With the staggering number of solar and wind energy facilities that were constructed this year and the many to come, are
    there serious impacts to natural resources that leave ecosystems more vulnerable?
    Colton Claborn will unpack this topic to bring clarity to the topic of conserving natural resources versus
    renewable energy progress.
