Conversations in Wildflowers: A Creative Investigation & Walk
July 8, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm$60
Conversations in Wildflowers: A Creative Investigation & Walk on Saturday, July 8 indulges in the act of
pausing to be fully present in nature. Engage in a conversation with the earth through all of your senses.
Connect. Collaborate. Harmonize. Local artist and Certified Nature Connected Coach, Ivy Walker, is joined by
writer and executive director of 1% for Open Space Molly Murfee, in a series of visual, written and sensory
exercises to really sink in and deepen your unique relationship with the land. Tap into your nature-inspired
creativity through reflecting, journaling, and making art with the land, rather than always moving swiftly
through it. Use the natural history of wildflowers, site-specific sculpture artists (such as Andy Goldsworthy),
environmental writers (such as Terry Tempest Williams), and the inherent metaphor of nature as your muses.
Do more than just identify the wildflowers! Learn, discover, explore and create in 1% for Open Space’s
wildflower hike offerings during the Crested Butte Wildflower Festival.
This hike helps to benefit the work of 1% for Open Space in raising funds to help preserve our gorgeous land
including its sweeping viewsheds, bountiful recreational access, valuable working ranches, and important
ecosystems, wildlife habitats and watersheds. For more information visit www.1percentforopenspace.org.
This experience takes place from 9:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. and tuition is $60.
