Members Only Free Event Nature Walk/Hike Lots of Physical Activity

The Belle Forest Cave & Arboretum is a 4-acre piece of land that was purchased by the TennGreen Land Conservancy in 2015. The arboretum was certified in 2018 by the Tennessee Urban Forestry Council with 38 native tree species. Because there are only three parking spaces at the property, we will need to meet at a nearby shopping center and carpool to the site.

Please note that this event is tentative pending approval by the TennGreen Land Conservancy.

Additional details and a sign-up link available soon.

Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants
Ecological restoration can be understood as an act of reciprocity, in return for the gifts of the earth. This talk explores the ecological and ethical imperatives of healing the damage we have inflicted on our land and waters. We trace the evolution of restoration philosophy and practice and consider how integration of indigenous knowledge can expand our understanding of restoration from the biophysical to the biocultural. Reciprocal restoration includes not only healing the land but our relationship to land. In healing the land, we are healing ourselves.

Wild Ones is excited to cohost this event with the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh's Earth Week 2024 and the Wild Ones Fox Valley Chapter.
