The UCS Science Network: Who We Are

The UCS Science Network is a community of more than 17,000 scientists, engineers, economists, public health specialists, and other experts across the country working to educate the public and inform decisions critical to our health, safety, and environment.

July Science Network Spotlight

Audrey Peterman has a passion for getting people engaged with our national parks. Through her company Earthwise Productions, Inc, she focuses on connecting the public lands system and the American public. In 1995, she and her husband Frank traveled more than 12,000 miles taking in the beauty of these national treasures around the country. They've visited more than 170 units of the National Park System, taken thousands of Americans on personal tours of the parks and worked to expose the benefits of the parks to Americans of color. She detailed her travels in a book she co-authored with her husband Frank, Legacy on the Land: A Black Couple Discovers Our National Inheritance and Tells Why Every American Should Care. Audrey hopes that sharing the stories of our nation’s history in our parks system “inspires us to wake up and address the most pressing threat faced by our generation – climate change.”
