Plants and animals offer up many different ways of being, becoming, and living. From intersex worms to flowers that transition sex overnight, nature is non-binary! During this inclusive virtual workshop, explore the history and science of gender expression and definition. Learn about and celebrate the diversity found throughout nature.
In this program, participants will:
Set community guidelines for a safe, honest discussion; learn what nature teaches us about gender; Participate in small-group breakout sessions to discuss concepts and take-aways
This program is open to anyone who is looking to explore nature in an environment that is representative of all identities and expressions. Led by non-binary nature enthusiast Nat Carreno, this interactive online program will offer unique insights into the diversity of biological expression in the natural world.
Note: The program will be supported by Arboretum education staff, who will host the Zoom session, share the impetus of this program and its connection to the Arboretum’s mission, and facilitate discussion in one of the breakout rooms.
