The Case for Hip-Hop Forestry 

As a forester, Dr. Thomas Easley developed a deeper understanding of why diversity works so well and applied that approach to hip-hop, health, environmental justice, and spirituality. Together we can broaden our message to diverse audiences and partners, and hopefully share the Adirondack park experience with more people of color. 

Mindfulness Training for Educators


Participants will learn mindfulness practices, meditation, the neuroscience of learning, the nature of mind, and how to cultivate their inner resources. Learn how mindfulness might benefit you in your role as an educator, and re-connect with the ideals that brought you into this field from the start!

Place-Based Education for Educators 


How does the place where you teach influence your curriculum? What tools can be used to connect students to place? Participants in the workshop will explore these topics while hiking in Adirondack Park, engaging in inquiry and design experiences, and planning place-based lessons and educational experiences for their students.
