How did that river get its name? How would things be different if it was nameless? The geographical features in our landscape are named through an interesting system, and once we learn more about it, often leads to an increase in awareness and environmental stewardship.
This webinar will cover some of the principles & practices of naming natural features, the categories of names, issues concerning renaming, and includes five examples of how naming plus awareness can promote stewardship of the features that are named.
