A Sense of Place: Stories from the Land

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Together we will explore how a place-based approach affected both cultural and ecological restoration on a 60 acre piece of land. Stories from the land will take us through the history of Woodbine Ecology Center, both past and present, and dig up the tales that have inspired change. As we virtually walk the land we will visit different sites and learn about sustainability practices, human healing, animal reintroduction, survival techniques, movement strategy, solidarity practices, and much more.
