Black in Nature
Enjoying the outdoors is for everyone. However, we know that safe and equitable access to the outdoors is not a reality for many people, including our Black community, as we saw again with Christian Cooper’s recent experience. Duke Gardens is committed to working with our communities to change this.
There are many wonderful Black environmental educators and researchers sharing their knowledge and experiences online. Here are a few of the people we like to learn from. Add to our growing list here by messaging us on social media or at GardensEducation@duke.edu.
