Horatio Nature Preserve - man sitting on rock

April 28th (Sunday) 1:00 .-3:30 p.m.

Join Horatio Colony Nature Preserve Project Assistant, Meggie Donovan, for a unique program combining poetry and nature. The program will begin with a short lesson on poetry writing techniques. Participants will then explore the West Hill on a nature hike where they will experience the preserve and collect “picturesque” words for a writer’s notebook. The program will explore language and learn how poetry is connected to our everyday lives. Participants will make and compose original three-line haiku poems using word collections. This is a chance to immerse yourself in a natural setting and release the boundless energy of creativity that is inside you in a fun and supportive setting. Bring your favorite pen or pencil and warm clothing to be outdoors. Registration is required for this event. Sign-up HERE or call 603-283-2115 or email colonypreserve@antioch.edu for details.
