Part 1: Forest Experience Location:  Take a guided contemplative walk through the forest with international artist Evgenia Emets, known for her work blending art and ecology. Limited to 25 participants, this moderate-level hike begins at Spirit Sanctuary and explores the Black Kettle trail before circling back to the sanctuary entrance. With the recent summer rain, we will be navigating wet and sometimes uneven terrain. Parking is available onsite.

Enjoy snacks and drinks as you view art that explores themes of nature and community. The exhibition opens immediately following the forest walk.
