Humanics@FresnoState/WildPlaces Skill Share on the Tule River

  • WildPlaces 37608 rio vista dr. springville, ca (map)

How do we live, work, and play in better ways in our region and keep the ever-widening skill sets of our leaders focused on a shared vision…a good vision that moves Nature towards the center of how, what, and why we function? In other words, seeing through Our Nature Eye.

Humanics@FresnoState visits the Giant Sequoia National Monument and the Tule River watershed with WildPlaces as their humble host. WildPlaces is so pleased to show these change agents from the much respected Humanics@FresnoState a little about how Nature presents a method for making human-centered decisions more inclusive of Nature…and the humans.

A collection of students and professors from a wide range of academic and real-life focus areas, this remarkable program transforms lives and perspectives on leadership & philanthropy and engenders Exceptional Leaders, Enhanced Organizations, & Enriched Communities.

WildPlaces is pleased to host Humanics@FresnoState again this year in this informal and outdoor Skill-Sharing afternoon with the goal to unravel standard, inflexible, and often damaging systems and replacing them with new, fresh, innovative, and thoughtful approaches to address complex social, economic, artistic, and environmental dysfunctions.

Come learn more. The event is open to WildPlaces’ folks to volunteer and help roll the day out and to participate in the discussions. Space is limited and registration is required. Lunch will be a Bag-Lunch-Potluck.
