Register for the Wild Roots BIPOC Forest School program today!
According to a report commissioned by Nature Canada, nature spaces are often seen as "white spaces" by BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour) youth.
In an effort to make nature a welcoming and safe space for racialized communities, Lukeisha and Wild Roots, in collaboration with Black Parents of Ottawa, have launched a BIPOC Forest School Program for children ages 4-10 years.
