High Desert Speaker Series: Cultivating Partnerships

March 20, 2024
7:00 pm
Hollywood Theater, Portland OR

Spend an evening with Dr. Cristina Eisenberg, a community ecologist and Associate Dean for Inclusive Excellence and  Director of Tribal Initiatives at Oregon State University, as part of Oregon Natural Desert Association’s 2024 High Desert Speaker Series.

Dr. Eisenberg will share learnings from her land stewardship research focused on ecocultural restoration. This event will explore how a merging of Traditional Ecological Knowledge and Western Science – a concept called Two-Eyed Seeing – can build cross-cultural partnerships and projects that conserve landscapes and elevate indigenous communities.

ONDA’s Stewardship Director, Gena Goodman-Campbell, will join to delve into the current steps ONDA is taking to restore Oregon’s high desert in partnership with local tribes.

You’ll leave this event with a better understanding of how Traditional Ecological Knowledge and Western Science can be used to create sustainable and resilient natural systems.
