Event Description:Join us at the Mt. Goliath Nature Center for a mindful day on the mountain during which we will engage in bilingual storytelling specific to our individual and greater connection to the Earth and our natural environment.
The proposed event will feature start with a short, guided walk on the Bristlecone Pine Loop Trail (about ¼ mile) during which we will encourage mindful discussion in preparation for the storytelling circle.
We will follow the guided mindfulness walk with a facilitated storytelling circle with a focus on the narratives surrounding the question, “What does nature mean to you?”
The event as a whole is designed with the purpose of exploring and enhancing our human connection to the Earth in mind. In exploring that human connection, we can empower ourselves and others to connect with the Earth and foster a passion for caring for and conserving our public lands and spaces.
We'll be finishing up by noon, but because of limited picnic/lunch space at the Nature Center for a group lunch, we will NOT be having a group lunch. Those who so wish are encouraged to bring a lunch to enjoy somewhere on the mountain! We will also provide participants with a list of lunch options in Idaho Springs. Before departing, we will be doing a giveaway for some Columbia gear and swag!
We have 15 spots available. The fee to the Nature Center is $10 per car so carpooling is encouraged. Fees will be refunded.
