Poetry on Preserves & Art In Nature Walk

Celebration of Trails Poetry on Preserves & Art In Nature Walk

With artists
Elizabeth Winters & Amanda Post
And poet Ingrid Keriotis

Saturday, June 1

Meet at the Cascade Canal Trail parking lot located off Gracie Road 

Join Art In Nature commissioned artists Elizabeth Winters & Amanda Post along Cascade Canal Trail for a guided walk through their site-specific installation “Without Walls”. A collaboration between the artists and Mother Nature, “Without Walls” consists of a series of handmade frames constructed from natural materials found on the forest floor. Swinging from branches and nestled within boughs, the frames invite trail users to pause and appreciate the natural beauty before them.

During the walk, we will be joined by Poetry on Preserves commissioned poet, Ingrid Keriotis, for a reading of select poems.

The walk will be about 1.5 miles in total (.75 miles in, and .75 miles back out).

This is a FREE community event open to everyone! Check out all of our Celebration of Trails events here
