Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Accessibility
At Seldovia Nature Tours, I believe that all people have the right to a close connection to the natural world, and opportunities to learn about nature. I recognize that inequities in our society are widespread and hinder access to the outdoors. Only by embracing inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility as values will we be able to foster a love of nature in all people and inspire them to be active stewards of the environment.
Seldovia Nature Tours is a safe space where I welcome BIPOC, LGBTQ+, disabled, and anyone who has felt excluded. I will do my best to accommodate your needs and make your time in Seldovia a great experience.
This statement is an acknowledgment of my continued learning and growth around antiracism, diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility. I invite you to join me in this collective effort for the love of the natural world, and for each other.
