How Outdoor Experiences Connect Diverse Communities to the Land
Instructor: Audrey Peterman
Connecting people to the land is one of the best ways land trusts can show their relevance and, therefore, ensure conserved land stays conserved. Plus, it’s just the right thing to do! Unfortunately far too many Americans haven’t always felt welcome in making that connection, and it’s time for land trusts to help change that dynamic. Join Audrey Peterman, nationally-recognized president and co-founder of Earthwise Productions, Inc., an environmental consulting and publishing firm focused on connecting the public lands system and the American public, as she discusses how diverse communities experience the outdoors and how your organization can be a positive, welcoming facilitator to connect more people to the land. With an emphasis on real-world examples, this webinar will highlight lessons learned from organizations that have successfully worked to connect diverse communities to the land.
