Oresteia Discussion Group
Sunday December 1st: Forest Awareness Walk- 3:00-5pm, N. Remote
We’ll do a little bit of tracking and some plant ID, we’ll practice sensory awareness skills and using them to move through the forest in an integrated, receptive way. This will require periods of silence and listening, so please come with this intention. Bring a journal and pencils for sketching.
Thursday, December 5th: Poison Oak Appreciation Walk- 4:00pm-6pm, N. Remote
Poison Oak is probably the most maligned native plant in the western United States—yet whether in the form of a shrub, towering vine, or tree, it plays vital and unique roles in wild ecosystems throughout its range. We’ll cautiously visit some of Poison Oak’s strongholds in Upper Campus, while discussing its ecology, sharing lore and stories, and exploring what this plant can teach us about building effective resistance to UCSC expansion.
Saturday, December 7th: Forest Renewal for Students- 12:00pm-2pm, N. Remote
As finals approach, let this be an opportunity to take a little break, slow down and be filled with gratitude. We will have lunch together in the forest, encourage each other, and let the beauty and complexity of our natural world give us perspective, renew our minds, and restore the stoke in our hearts.
