Beth Collier, Founder & Director of Wild in the City has interviewed two Environmental Studies students, Audre’ana Ellis and Destiny Hodges, for her organization’s podcast entitled ‘Black Nature Narratives’. Wild in the City is a non-profit that seeks to support well-being through relationship with nature in London’s wild spaces. Wild in the City accomplishes this through natural history lessons, nature-based skills development and ecotherapy for urban populations.
Beth Collier encountered Destiny and Audre’ana at the Smithsonian Anacostia Community Muesuem’s Women’s Environmental Leadership Summit. She was impressed with their campus leadership on environmental justice. In this podcast episode, hear Destiny and Audre’ana express what studying at an HBCU means to them, their sense of responsibility to the community in DC, their thoughts on the idea of environmentalism as a white endeavour and their hopes for careers within the environmental field.
