Location: Stanley Park, Avison Way, Vancouver, BC
A Poetic Walk Through Nature – Among Forests and Shorelines
You are invited to join Vancouver’s 100,000 Poets for Change on an EARTHWALK at 10:00 AM, September 29, 2012. Rain or shine. We will do a two-hour easy hike (with some stops!) in Stanley Park and will have half a dozen poets reading select poems calling for the preservation of our beautiful forests and shorelines. A guest speaker will also present a narrative tour of the cultural history and natural habit of Stanley Park. This EARTHWALK is part of a series of walks presented by False Creek Watershed Society throughout the summer and fall. This hike is open to people of all ages. Please come prepared for weather and terrain
All interested walkers are required to register to attend this free event: http://earthwalks11poets.eventbrite.com/. The registration site also has our meeting place and more details.
100,000 Poets for Change is in its second year of existence. It’s a day in which poets, musicians, and artists raise awareness of social, economic, and environmental issues in their cities. Poets in hundreds of cities world-wide celebrate this day simultaneously. The global coordinator is U.S. poet, author, and environmentalist Michael Rothenberg, owner of Big Bridge Magazine. Mary Woodbury, who owns Moon Willow Press, has worked with Michael for over a decade on literary endeavors and jumped at the chance to host last year’s Vancouver’s 100,000 Poets for Change, along with Rita Wong and Christine LeClerc. This year, creative writing teacher and poet Elaine Woo joins Mary in planning our 2012 EARTHWALK.
