*** Cook's Canyon Wildlife Sanctuary Workshop ***

Our fall workshop is scheduled for October 24th at Cook's Canyon Wildlife Sanctuary in Barre, MA.
Mass Audubon's wildlife sanctuaries across the state offer people of all ages and abilities opportunities to get outdoors and connect with nature. On Saturday October 24th we will explore Cook's Canyon Wildlife Sanctuary. This 60 acre site was named for the small ravine in which Galloway Brook flows, Cook's Canyon was once an early 20th-century tourist destination. The main attraction is a waterfall that descends in a series of cascades over rocky ledges.

Our HT activity will be a Nature Journaling session led by artist, Laura Rankin.
Relax and absorb the nature around you. Discover a new way to see the beauty in your surroundings.

Following our workshop we will head to Laura's house where we will have a harvest lunch and our NEHTN business meeting.

"In this 20th century, to stop rushing around, to sit quietly on the grass,
to switch off the world and come back to the earth,
to allow the eye to see a willow, a bush, a cloud, a leaf...!
I have learned that what I have not drawn I have never really seen."

--Frederick Franck, The Zen of Seeing!
