A brief welcome and Land Acknowledgement for these traditional homelands of the Nimiipuu and Peluuc will begin each event, then all are invited to move freely about the site, listening to music and lending their voices to reading the poems featured on botanical signage during the two-hour performance.

 “Plants are the first restoration ecologists. They are using their gifts for healing the land, showing us the way.”
