The Walden Woods Project, deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Farrington Nature Linc, The Food Project, Lincoln Land Conservation Trust, and Mass Audubon are thrilled to present the spring speaker series, “On Belonging in Outdoor Spaces.” This free virtual series, running March – June, will feature prominent speakers whose work is advancing efforts to strengthen belonging and connection between communities of color and the benefits of time in nature.
Exploring the vulnerability and the resiliency of natural and cultural ecosystems, Rydz invites viewers and participants of her projects to imagine a different future – one shaped by our connections and care for local and global communities.
Dr. Lanham will discuss what it means to embrace the full breadth of his African-American heritage and his deep kinship to nature and adoration of birds. The convergence of ornithologist, college professor, poet, author and conservation activist blend to bring our awareness of the natural world and our moral responsibility for it forward in new ways. Candid by nature — and because of it — Lanham will examine how conservation must be a rigorous science and evocative art, inviting diversity and race to play active roles in celebrating our natural world.
