Black Voices in Nature

from Bay Nature Magazine

In concert with the national conversation and protests about systemic police violence against black lives, there is simultaneously, and inseparably, a discussion about being #BlackInNature, #BlackBirders, and equal access to nature, galvanized by a racist incident between a black man birder and white woman walking her dog in New York’s Central Park on May 25, the same day George Floyd was killed.
