What about Green River & the Frontier Fellowship excites you most?

Epicenter has offered me the gift of listening and engaging with the community of Green River—both the non-human and human—presenting a new challenge in working with a community that I don’t presently have ties with. I’m looking forward to researching the history of Green River and the ways I might understand place through past, present and future entanglements.
