Use BRN is thrilled to release our final list of faculty for our 2018 Field School. This summer we have an amazing line up of talented conservation professionals, scientists, activists, and artists scheduled to lead sessions with participants from July 16th - August 10th.
Glance through our catalog to see our curriculum breakdown and our list of presenters including local partners, experts, and internal BRN staff.
A few highlights to look for: Participants will hear from Amy Juan, a writer and member of the Tohono O'odham Nation about indigenous history and present day issues.
Gary Nabhan, famed ethnobiologist and agroecologist, will lead several different sessions on community restoration and will lead us in a trip to learn about living fence rows in Sonora, Mexico.
Nelda Ruiz and Claudio Rodriguez, community organizers with Tierra y Libertad, will demonstrate their work to create sustainable communities in Tucson.
Author, Francisco Cantú, will lead a session on the culture surrounding the borderwall and its impacts on communities.
Participants will also visit Brad Lancaster's water harvesting site and Bean Tree Farm to harvest desert foods.
