Leading a local community in appreciating, understanding, and protecting birds and their natural habitats.
A selection of books from the Nature Shop in honor of Black History Month. Featuring books by black authors from around the world and/or about the black experience in environmentalism and outdoor recreation.
In Rooted in the Earth, environmental historian Dianne D. Glave overturns the stereotype that a meaningful attachment to nature and the outdoors is contrary to the black experience. In tracing the history of African Americans' relationship with the environment and using her storytelling skills to re-create black naturalists of the past, Glave reclaims the African American heritage of the land. This book is a groundbreaking, important first step toward getting back into nature, not only for personal growth but for the future of the planet.
