The Problem

Natural corridors have been destroyed by human paths & industry. Community wants connections within natural migration corridors instead of our currently protected 13% "wild islands." Scientific practices experimenting with various native or hybrid Willow trees for fedges- hedges made from willow+ and trained & woven to protect people & animals. Study of World wildlife corridors, land bridges & biomimicry.

Our Plan

Collaborate & Create beautiful lines & circles of safety while studying key lines, natural landforms which consider impacts which build community. Through play & building community we develop collaborations to support STEAM skill building in elementary age students. Looking for Middle School sign ups for Compassionate Leader sharing during summer workshops in the Ardenwald neighborhood & at LWSBR in the Columbia River Gorge. Parent involvement invitations each workshop.
