Help us signal the shifting seasons, give gratitude to the sun, and gather around friends and community for a summer solstice celebration at Finnriver. Festivities include music, yoga, lawn games, a lecture on wildness and ecosystem renewel, food, and cider for three days at our farm.
Events on Friday:
Summer Solstice Kickoff - 5:00-7:30pm "Restoration, Renewal and the Necessity of Wildness" Lecture by Scott Freeman author of Saving Tarboo Creek. By donation Restoration, Renewal and the Necessity of Wildness.
UW Biology Professor and local author, Scott Freeman, joins Jefferson Clemente to talk about his work on Tarboo Creek, and the relationship between restoration and renewal. As an ecologist and writer, Scott will discuss the intersection of science and art, looking at the ways poetry informs our understanding of the natural world and the experience of wildness. In a highly interactive presentation, we will be invited to engage the work of Aldo Leopold and his provocative invocation to Sand County Almanac: "There are some who can live without wild things, and some who cannot."
