Another Successful Learning Landscapes

Over the weekend of Nov. 3-4, NALC partnered with the Chemehuevi Cultural Center to hold a Learning Landscapes program at the Old Woman Mountains Preserve. More than forty people attended our overnight program in the Old Woman Mountains, including high school students, families with young children, and tribal elders. In one of our biggest events yet, participants were able to take part in a number of events and activities held throughout the weekend, including:

- An ethnobotanical hike guided by NALC Site Monitor Jeff Johnson.
- A presentation by the BLM Arizona Site Steward programs, and training on cultural monitoring
- Salt Song and Bird Songs by Chemehuevi, Mojave, and Cahuilla singers
- Restoration and vertical mulching demonstrations by Site Monitor Jeff Johnson
- A presentation about the National Monuments and conservation on lands surrounding the OWMP by board member Matthew Leivas
- A presentation about Native American astronomy and myth by Jeff Johnson
