We join scholars who criticize the Western separation of humans and the more-than-human (MtH) and believe that an emphasis on the MtH within students' local community is supported by repeated exposure. We take an ethnographic approach to study a collaborative program between a university, a local nonprofit, and a US public elementary school that…

This article examines community-driven adult environmental learning in a volunteer watershed stewards program.

This elaboration of an ecopedagogy in movementscapes aims to present an empirically informed account of the concept of "ecomotricity" as manifested in the living body interacting in/with nature (human-and-other-than-human). This interaction is ludic (where pleasure or joy/happiness gives meaning to the lived experience) and ecological…
