POST EVENTS

Peninsula Open Space Trust is postponing all in-person events and outings until further notice to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) under the direction of local health authorities. We look forward to gathering together with our community once it is safe to do so.

Until then, we’re offering fun, engaging and informative virtual events. We hope you’ll register to join our upcoming online events listed below, or view recordings of our past webinars on POST’s YouTube channel.

This session, led by our friends at The Avarna Group, will focus on the controversial history of environmental conservation in the United States and work to change the future. Participants will be led through a timeline of events from the 19th and early 20th century, revealing how early environmental movements sometimes harmed Black, Indigenous, and other communities of color across what is now the United States. Using this context, we will also discuss examples of how conservation movements are now working to course correct, and ensure that our future is more equitable and inclusive.
