Join us on an intentional, slow yet playful stroll in the woods. Through games, discussion, and (of course) walking, we will sharpen our senses, meet the plants, trees and rocks around us as individuals, and practice knowing and loving the things in the wild spaces of our world.
People of all ages are welcome, especially adults.
Please dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. Let us know if you have any accessibility questions or needs. We will work with you to make your participation possible.
This public activation is part of the Of Containers and Firestarts exhibition.
