Advocacy Webinar | Public Lands in the United States: A Curriculum Introduction (April 22nd at 2:00pm - 3:00pm EST)
AORE is bringing representatives from The Wilderness Society together to share introductory information about their curriculum with our members. The Wilderness Society and the Avarna Group, working with Indigenous consultants Daisy Purdy, Honor Keeler, Dr. Rae Gould and Yufna Soldier Wolf, has published a teaching curriculum for helping educators, youth leaders and even government agencies share the full story of public lands.
The downloadable curriculum, Public Lands in the United States, includes five chapters, each with context-setting background, step-by-step lesson plans and materials for each activity—from printable images and “Wilderness Values” cue cards to timeline puzzles and research prompts about current diversity and access efforts and current threats to public lands. Although it’s geared especially for those working with high school-aged students, it’s been downloaded by university staff, nonprofits and agencies such as the National Parks Service and U.S. Forest Service. Register for the introductory webinar; we'll send a link to the downloadable curriculum in the confirmation. [REGISTER]

Understanding Place: Tribal and First Nation Perspectives For Better Recreation Experiences
As you plan your trips with students to exciting places that bring about growth with each participant, try adding one crucial aspect for lifelong learning. Sharing the historical perspectives from the local First Nation or Tribal Nation can bring your recreation experience to another level and give your student area-specific knowledge that will broaden their worldview. The indigenous peoples hold vast amounts of information about the characteristics of the lands and water where you recreate. This workshop focuses on the use of local traditional tribal knowledge that can be used to develop the students understanding of local tribal history, environment and connection to those traditions. As an instructor, reaching out to the local Tribal or First Nation, local National Parks Service personnel and other recreational services will broaden your network and assist your creation of a deeper understanding by students. By incorporating the indigenous names or activities of the area you recreate and in learning about the original people and environment, you will develop a richer experience for each student. Having a better understanding of the local community, creates a deeper respect and ultimately care of the local lands and waters. The presenters will incorporate local Tribal examples in the greater Spokane area. As more knowledgeable instructors and students, all will gain in their connection to the lands and waters of the area. Creating space for these indigenous voices can deliver a greater respect and understanding of the lands and waters that the activities will take place. NOTE: This course requires payment.
