Storytelling, Inclusion, & the Outdoors

Come join us for a presentation, discussion, and workshop!

We will learn about how the stories we build and tell in relation to our cultural identities connect with the environment, conservation, and the outdoors. We will discuss the ways we "count" in the narratives of the outdoors and other conservation issues, especially in connection with cultural identity and a recognized need for more diversification in the conservation movement. How are we representative and how do we represent ourselves? Come be a part of these stories, told and untold, and join us to include your own. Let's see how we move forward on these issues together.
