SRS Director Highlights Traditional Knowledge During Science Café
Southern Research Station Director Robert Doudrick presented "Listening to the Land and Honoring Traditional Knowledge" during the NC Museum of Natural Sciences' science café on Thursday, August 29. Doudrick highlighted the importance of respecting traditional knowledge, originating with Native American and indigenous communities as a result of living intimately with the land for thousands of years. This special relationship with the environment can serve as a foundation for long-term forest management, connecting ecological, social, spiritual, and economic understanding to forest sustainability. The café supports the Station's partnership with the museum's Nature Research Center to share forest science with diverse audiences. Please watch Doudrick's science cafe on the museum's website.
