Discussing Diversity in Our Wild Spaces

Over the course of a 4-day camping trip this past May in Yosemite National Park, CSPF participated in a Muir Campfire Discussion entitled “Diversity and Relevancy.” It was a gathering of inspiring people from nonprofits, government agencies and individuals involved in the movement to encourage more people of color to visit and seek careers in the outdoors. Please watch this video to learn more and to hear from some of the participants.

From the Director:

In May I was lucky enough to be invited to document an amazing event in Yosemite National Park. It was a campfire discussion on improving the diversity of both the visitation and the employment within our parks and wild spaces. It was a gathering of extraordinary people from non profit agencies, land management bureaus and other people involved in the movement to encourage more people of color to visit and seek careers in the outdoors. If you love our National Parks and other wild spaces please share this with others, as it really is one of the most important issues facing the conservation movement and outdoor recreation. Thanks for watching.
