Mary Oliver, one of the most beloved nature poets, passed away earlier this spring. For her birthday, we will take a walk in nature and read her poetry along the route. Afterward, we will gather by the stone hearth and share some more poetry by the fire. Feel free to bring your favorite Mary Oliver poems to share.
All ages are welcome, but this program is geared for adults. Register by 9/8.
