    Preserving the past and learning its legacy

    Southeast Conservation Corps

    February 19th, 2021 | Located in Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park is a place full of history—but also a place of unique community. Often referred to as “the Chickamauga Battlefield” or “Chick-Chatt,” the park is the preserved site of two major Civil War battles in the South. While tourists come for the history tour, locals come for the hiking, walking, running, and equestrian trails. Members of the community use the park to exercise, meet their friends, and fulfill their daily ritual of commuting to their beloved park.

    A Home Heating Crisis. A Devastating Forest Fire Waiting to Happen. One Innovative Solution

    Ancestral Lands

    January 29th, 2021 | It’s been a fragmented and fluid emergency effort to save lives that’s difficult to measure. Some, like Anthony, harvest and cut firewood to give away. Others, like professional woodcutter Neil Damon, sell it for a razor-thin profit, with prices scaled to meet the financial needs of consumers. And lately, professional woodcutters, Indigenous community activists, and tribal officials have collaborated with the U.S. Forest Service and nonprofits to deliver firewood made from logs that have been mechanically thinned from Arizona’s tinder-dry national forests in an effort to avert deadly wildfires that are only getting worse. This fledgling program is aptly called “Wood for Life.”

    Ancestral Lands

    January 16th, 2021 | In truth, there can be significant barriers for many people both to access nature and to feel safe and welcome there —particularly for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and people who identify as LGBTQ2S. The systemic inequity and racism that often deters or altogether prevents BIPOC communities from visiting public lands is often the same reason the outdoor industry workforce has minimal representation from these groups. If we want to diversify the outdoors and the outdoor industry, we need to establish safe and intentional points of entry for individuals who feel excluded from these spaces.

    Conservation Legacy

    January 16th, 2021 | Conservation Legacy operates 'affinity crews' within each of its seven crew-based programs across the country, in an effort to advance representation for marginalized communities in the outdoors. Affinity crews present opportunities for members to gain hands-on experience, training, and professional development in the conservation world—an industry that has been dominated by white men both historically and contemporarily. We can’t hope to achieve diversification within our industry without first creating an equitable and inclusive space where individuals from different backgrounds feel welcome, and affinity crews are one step on the journey towards making the outdoors and public lands feel safe and welcoming for all.

    Partnerships

    January 6th, 2021 | Nature Valley and the National Park Foundation (NPF) announced today the completion of a three-year project to restore access to 10,000 miles of national park trails, which is equivalent to flying from New York City to Sydney. To celebrate the occasion, Nature Valley has remade the undeniably infectious 80’s hit song, "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" by The Proclaimers and partnered with Grammy and Tony Award-winning music talent Daveed Diggs to perform the anthem.
