Loveland Garden Club Lecture with Michael Dockry


What’s Happening?

“Learning From The Indigenous Roots of Sustainably Forestry in the U.S.A.: Promoting Sustainability, Community Healing, and Partnerships”

Building upon a tradition of environmental stewardship, Indigenous people tell us that our common future depends upon incorporating their wisdom and perspectives into social, economic, and ecological decisions. Join Professor Michael Dockry as he details the Indigenous roots of sustainable forestry, starting with the Memominee Nation in Wisconsin, and how that history can inform contemporary forestry practices, ecological restoration efforts, and lead to community healing. Dockry will reflect on his decades long-work with Indigenous communities and provide practical partnership-building strategies for working with tribes to effectively combine Indigenous knowledge with western natural resource management science to solve 21st century challenges. 

Lecture includes an in-person presentation, followed by a dessert reception
