About the Event

This is our last in a series of four wild walks where we explore how to love all of nature, including human nature. It doesn't matter if you missed the previous ones - you'll be welcomed and can jump right in!

Our theme for this walk is spiritual intelligence which includes reflecting upon letting go, acceptance, aging, and death. Please note that this is a nonsectarian event, although many will find spirituality in how we are connecting to nature and that which is greater than ourselves.

This wild walk is part of One Earth Conservation's Nurture Nature Program which aims to inspire, motivate, educate, and support people to take care of themselves, their organizations, other individuals of all species, and the biotic community as a whole by developing their awareness and understanding of nature, especially human nature as it relates to all of nature. Rev. Dr. Joyner, wildlife veterinarian, multispecies minister, and Co-Director of One Earth, will co-facilitate this retreat along with partner, biologist, and Co-Director, Gail Koelln.

We ask for a $10 donation for the walk, which helps us fund all our work as a nonprofit involved with conservation of parrots around the Americas. If it is raining we will still meet, and enjoy nature experiences in the Visitor's Center.

To Attend You Will Need to:

-Be an adult or mature teen

-Purchase a ticket

-Dress comfortably for a lengthy walk/hike around the nature center and down to the bay (bring binoculars if you have some).

-Be willing to stay at the Visitor's Center and look at birds and nature from there if you are unable to walk the easy trails (We'd love to have those with variable ability to walk, or even unable to walk, as you can enjoy the nature experience from the Visitor's Center).
