Regenerating Landscapes, Restoring Relations Workshop

The Center for Rural Livelihoods (formerly Aprovecho) in collaboration with Live Oak Consulting is hosting a FREE six-module workshop that focuses on integrating Indigenous knowledge with ecological restoration projects, expanding Tribal land access, and decolonizing settler colonial land practices. 

The first three modules are online and will be recorded for asynchronous participation and the second three modules will be site visits to places where there has been a collaboration between Native and non-Native people on land stewardship projects.
