Refuge Day: Fall Meetup Edition #OptOutside

The Refuge Day series is geared towards BIPOC and features seasonal outdoor-focused activities, skills sharing, outdoor recreation workshops

#OptOutside with Golden Bricks Events this Black Friday! Let’s meet up, explore and learn more about the land, and be in community with each other.

November’s Refuge Day will explore public lands and how they inspire, influence, and create connections with an array of diverse folks. Take a hike with us, meditate with us, and learn more about BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) experiences on public lands.

We will be collaborating with The Wilderness Society and The Snoqualmie Tribe Ancestral Land Movement at November’s Refuge Day where they will facilitate an interpretive hike and a group talk.

Learn about the Snoqualmie Ancestral Land Movement during an educational walk through the park. The walk will begin at Sunset Beach and end at Tibbets Beach.

The Snoqualmie Tribe’s Ancestral Lands Movement seeks to spread awareness of the Snoqualmie people who have lived in the southern Salish Sea region since time immemorial. The walk will share the significance of these lands and will provide information on how people can help the Tribe in respecting, restoring, and protecting these lands.

As the Salish Sea region has grown in population, the Snoqualmie Tribe’s ancestral lands have been heavily impacted by recreation. This impact is especially apparent at the popular trails in the Snoqualmie corridor area, where increased visitation has resulted in a degradation of the land.

Join The Wilderness Society for a group talk about the newest edition of their curriculum, which will include:

– More stories of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color in the conservation movement

– Updated lessons and background reading on managing issues on public lands

– A new module: Climate Change, Biodiversity, and Public Lands — plus two new lesson plans and teaching materials which feature collaborations with educator and curriculum author Bill Bigelow and three amazing climate activism artists

In rolling out the latest edition of their curriculum, they’ve partnered with Intersectional Environmentalist to create a series of short animations highlighting stories from the curriculum.

The purpose of this event is to spread awareness about BIPOC solidarity, stewardship, and advocacy and to facilitate an inclusive environment.
