On Belonging in Outdoor Spaces Series Starts Tonight

This morning in Jericho Forest

A group of Lincoln organizations is offering a virtual series “On Belonging in Outdoor Spaces” with speakers who are advancing efforts to strengthen belonging and connection between communities of color and the outdoors. The first four speakers were this spring, and due to popular demand, two more speakers are scheduled for this fall. Links to videos of the past speakers are here.

N’Sibo: the River to Which I Belong

The concept of ‘indigeneity’ denotes the Original People of a Place. This is not a dualistic relationship but, rather, an understanding that the people are the land and the land is the people, including All of Our Relations. We will explore principles of relationship, reciprocity, and responsibility, along with an examination of how these ways of being have been embraced or rejected in the Northeast, along with the implications.


The On Belonging in Outdoor Spaces series is organized and funded by the following Lincoln-based organizations: deCordova/Trustees, Farrington Nature Linc, The Food Project, Lincoln Land Conservation Trust, MassAudubon, and the Walden Woods Project.

Good on you, Lincoln. You give us hope. And a road map.
