Healing Grounds, Healthy Lands
American Prairie will host award-winning Montana author Liz Carlisle for a free in-person event on Thursday, September 29 at 6pm at the National Discovery Center in Lewistown. Carlisle will join a panel discussion with Smithsonian researcher Hila Shamon and Blackfeet Nation ecologist Latrice Tatsey on ways regenerative practices are revitalizing cultural ties to the land and stitching ecosystems back together.
This important discussion will draw upon and celebrate some of the key themes of Carlisle’s new book, Healing Grounds: Climate, Justice, and the Deep Roots of Regenerative Farming. The panel will explore their collective research, writings, and work to learn more about what makes land, ecosystems, and communities healthy, and what deep roots can teach us about connection and stewardship.
American Prairie National Discovery Center
Like many large-scale parks and protected natural areas across the globe, American Prairie now has a central gathering place for visitors from around the world. That place is called the National Discovery Center, and it is located in Lewistown, Montana, within a short drive to the prairie. The Center is open to the public and eventually will host local, regional, and national activities and programs that stir visitors to love and want to preserve the prairie and all of its inhabitants.
