March Bark About Hike: Place and Belonging

Sunday, March 12, 2017 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

*Please note that this hike overlaps with daylight savings! Don't forget to spring forward one hour!*

Join Gradey Proctor, long time Bark volunteer and co-founder of the Arctos School, as we explore what it means to belong to the land and form a relationship with it. Informed by the work of groundtruthing, which entails returning to a timber sale over and over again, one gains an ecological meaning of the place. This, coupled with the opportunity to stop a timber sale, offers us an opportunity to give back to a unique place on earth. Learning from the land and then working to protect it opens a dialogue with place and the beginning of a relationship.

On this hike we will explore a timber sale through the lens of ecology, wildcrafting and storytelling in our quest to re-inhabit the land as one way to make it through these troubling times.
