Simply put: If you spend time outdoors, it’s critical to hear Necefer’s facts and wisdom. Every single learning will inform your next adventure, while giving you a platform to educate your fellow outdoors lovers, too.
It's more important than ever for outdoor recreationists to respect public lands and indigenous peoples. We've tapped into one of the industry's brightest minds to bridge the gap.
Wow, there was so much in this course I never knew before! It gave me a whole new perspective on land use and how we recreate. I think it's so cool Crux Academy did a course on this.
I am so grateful that Dr. Necefer took the time to create this course. It was informative, fun, and easy to complete. I live in Canada, so I had a lot to learn about land management roles and responsibilities in the U.S. Similar issues emerge, but the available solutions are different. And, context is everything when building respectful relationships and seeking authentic collaboration. Thanks for your work!
Every outdoor adventurer needs to take this course. Whether you're a skier, a biker, or anything in between, Len's understanding of public lands and indegineous peoples is really important to take in. It definitely changes the way I recreate outside, and I'm really thankful for this newfound knowledge.
