Want to know how to be safe when venturing off on your own? Ever wonder what women should do about periods when camping/backpacking? Learn this and more from Tess Kohler, avid hiker, experienced backpacker, and all-around outdoorswoman. Then, we transition to episode #5 of Talking with Green Teachers, a podcast hosted by Umpqua Watersheds' partner organization: Green Teacher, which is based in Canada! Here's their description of that episode: We sat down with Dr. Ingrid Waldron to discuss how environmental racism manifests on the ground, specifically in Mi’kmaq and African Nova Scotian communities. Dr. Waldron also discusses the importance of getting community members involved in research from the very beginning, while touching on the role educators play in responding to environmental racism. Guest: Dr. Ingrid Waldron is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Health at Dalhousie University and the Director of the Environmental Noxiousness, Racial Inequities & Community Health Project (The ENRICH Project). As the Director of the ENRICH Project, Dr. Waldron has been investigating the socio-economic, political, and health effects of environmental racism in Mi’kmaq and African Nova Scotian communities. The ENRICH Project formed the basis to Dr. Waldron’s first book There’s Something in the Water: Environmental Racism in Indigenous and Black Communities, as well as the 2020 Netflix documentary There’s Something in the Water, which was co-produced by Waldron, actor Elliot Page, Ian Daniel, and Julia Sanderson.
