On Friday, April 22nd the community is invited to celebrate Earth Day with a walk, game and blessing. We will begin at the George T. Hiltebrant, North St. Pavilion at 4 p.m. Gather for snacks to fuel us to walk, rollerblade, skateboard or bike to the north street bridge. Thea Martin and Tom Vawter will be our nature interpreters along with way.
Please bring a small jar of water from home to pour into the river at the North Street Bridge as a ritual of blessing. Water is sacred and nourishes us creating life on earth. This blessing signifies the importance of caring for the earth and living in harmony with nature.
After the blessing, play a celebratory game of Pooh sticks. On the walk back to the pavilion we will pick up any litter we’ve made or found along the way. This event is sponsored by The Fulton Chain of Lakes Association, LivingADK, Old Forge Farmers Market, Old Forge Library and Weaving Home.
