Wakarusa Wetlands Celebration
SUN | Apr 5 | 2–4 PM | Haskell Indian Nations University Directions & Details
We’ll begin with a special land recognition at the Medicine Wheel Earthwork. Meet Dr. Daniel Wildcat and more local authors & artists as they share connections of their creative work to the wetlands and the outside world--enhancing our connections to nature, a sense of place and community. Feel free to bring a lawn chair or blanket; we’ll be outside. If there is inclement weather, we will cancel.
Plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early to allow time to walk from the road to the Medicine Wheel.
Directions: At the intersection of 23rd St. & Massachusetts St, take Mass. St. into the Haskell Campus and continue forward as this becomes Perimeter Road. When Perimeter intersects with Barker Ave., park on the side of Perimeter and walk south on the gravel road to the Medicine Wheel Earthwork.
Authors & Artists include:
• Dr. Daniel Wildcat
• Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg
• Dave Loewenstein
• Ken Lassman
• Lora Jost
• Dr. Jay T. Johnson
