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.
On Saturday we will start with an overview lesson and then will explore demonstration gardens at GRuB. Sunday will be a field trip to a local camas prairie, a wetland, and a saltwater beach.
Participants receive a curriculum that fit best with grades 6-12 learning levels but can be adapted for younger children and adults.
Taught by Mariana Harvey, Elise Krohn, and Joyce LeCompte
