Join this fun day of celebration and connection to our beloved Lake Champlain and the waters that feed her. ¬†You can begin with yoga offered on the shore of Shelburne Bay at 9 AM, or simply arrive and sip your coffee and enjoy the view. We'll gather at 10 AM for an opening circle of introductions & invocations, followed by opportunities to try your hand at rowing a longboat, paddling a canoe up river, exploring nature trails, creating collective art and more. Educational and sacred activities will be guided by faith leaders, field naturalists, educators, artists, and other talented souls.
¬†Participants are welcome to bring a picnic or purchase a tasty lunch on site. Boats will be provided - no private crafts please.
