Join Education & Outreach Coordinator, Casey Bries, in reviewing Trace: Memory, History, Race, and the American Landscape in which Lauret Savoy explores human relationship to land and place. This month’s discussion will focus on the following prompts: 1) What does it mean to face this country’s racial history and the ecological and human consequences of continuing to play out the collective narrative? 2) How can we deliberately realize the contexts of racism on the American land to cultivate broader, deeper perspectives that acknowledge enduring injustices of our society? Outdoors for All Reading & Discussion Series: Celebrate diversity in the outdoors and transform your perspective through environment-focused literary works by, for, and about people of historically excluded identities. Each month, OSMP staff will choose a book that supports deeper understanding of how environmental policy and land management can be used as tools to drive social change. We will gather virtually the fourth Monday of each month to discuss the reading and share ideas for creating community and building a more equitable and resilient future for our public lands. Participants are encouraged to read each month’s book, but all are welcome to join the discussion. All titles will be available as free-to-access e-books through Boulder Public Library (boulderlibrary.org). SHOP LOCAL! Prefer a hardcopy? Order it online through Trident Booksellers or Boulder Bookstore. A link to the virtual meeting location will be provided before the program start date.
