The Shelterwood Fellowship Program will offer four Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) students the opportunity to fuse Black/Indigenous land stewardship/forestry, land-based community-building, and ethnographic research through 10 weeks of immersive, applied learning at Shelterwood's 900 acre community center and forest in Cazadero, California during the summer of 2022. The Fellowship program has three overarching objectives: (1) prepare the next generation of BIPOC stewards to cultivate land-based, climate justice practice and theory; (2) generate qualitative knowledge to support decolonial BIPOC stewardship as part of a long-term mixed-methods research project; and (3) support the organizational development of Shelterwood.
