Cultural Ecosystems – Camas prairies
Saturday May 1st, 9:30 AM -12:00 PMonline, $30/$50 per person sliding scale
Learn about five ecosystems that Pacific Northwest regional tribes have cultivated since time immemorial including camas prairies, food forests, saltwater beaches, wetlands, and mountain huckleberry meadows. Many children grow up thinking that humans are harmful to the land. Through learning about cultural ecosystems, youth see how people can promote biodiversity and well-being through conscientious stewardship. We will share an overview lesson and a camas prairie lesson – offering tips for teaching in the classroom and in the field. Participants will receive two lessons that fit best with grades 6-12 learning levels but can be adapted for younger children and adults. Taught by Mariana Harvey (Yakama), Dr. Joyce LeCompte, Elizabeth Campbell (Spokane/Kalispel), and Elise Krohn.
