Annual Summer Solstice Event
Join us this year at our annual Summer Solstice Event! Meet at Berger Park at 5:30PM for a Bioblitz workshop where we train people to conduct local biodiversity assessments of various plants and animals in their own neighborhood as a celebration of national pollinator week! Then, we will start our walk from Berger Park towards the Meditation Point to survey heritage trees & plant IDs along the way. When we arrive at the meditation point around 7PM, we will meet up with anyone else joining us for a green witch ritual and gathering for the solstice! We hope to see you all there!
