As more people move into urban areas, forests and wildlands are being destroyed at an increasing rate. Indigenous Peoples traditionally understood the forest to be a shared living environment and this knowledge was a guiding force in their rehabilitation and maintenance of the forest and wildlands. This workshop will share the holistic forestry philosophies and practices that guided Native American and Indigenous Peoples as well as some of the practical tools and techniques that have been adapted to forest and wildlands restoration and are being used at Woodbine. Both these tools and perspectives can be used for increasing the health of, and appreciation for, the forests and the communities that depend on them.
