Help The Council Facilitate Dialogue With Tribes Regarding Traditional Knowledge in Oak and Prairie Habitats
The Long Tom Watershed Council (LTWC) is excited to announce an important opportunity for the watershed; but we need your help!
Through workshops, one-on-one conversations, and internships for Native youth, the Long Tom Watershed Council seeks to: facilitate dialogue between tribal members and partners exploring the potential to reincorporate traditional practices on the Andrew Reasoner Wildlife Preserve and Zumwalt Park near Fern Ridge; explore opportunities and interest in formalizing access for cultural practices; and inform processes for convening and formalizing relationships between tribal members and interested landowners.
The council seeks to raise $26,000 to fund the outreach and facilitation work on this project. The Spirit Mountain Community Fund has generously awarded the council with a $15,000 grant toward this project!
During the next month, the council seeks to raise the additional $11,000 necessary to complete this outreach & engagement. We are asking the watershed community to give in support of this valuable work. Will you give to this unique and meaningful project?
