With the summer solstice approaching I start to feel very connected to nature. Nothing like the pull of a totally balanced day to send me daydreaming about all the possibilities for our world. I sense the web of life, all things interacting in respect and understanding, stretched across the universe including all of life.
It’s that basic belief that prompted me to say yes when asked to join the International Wolf Center board. Their mission is to teach the world about wolves. Simple. Teach so that we may understand, understand so that we may care, care so that we may take action on behalf of the wolf. It goes deeper than just wolves. It’s the wolf’s relationship to wild lands, the need for other species to survive and thrive so that the web, which we are deeply entwined into, will survive.
The 2nd Annual Nordic Walk for Wolves will be on Tuesday, June 21 at French Regional Park in Plymouth, MN. Registration starts at 6pm, a free Nordic Walking demo at 6:30 and the fun guided trail walk at 7pm.
It’s a unique event not only because it supports the International Wolf Center but also because it is a Nordic Walk that allows walkers as opposed to a running event that allows poles. The Wolf Center will be there to teach you more about wolves and our special relationship with them, poles will be available to use free of charge with ID.
I hope you’ll come “walk on all fours” with our pack and perhaps even howl a little on the longest day of the year.Make it a family outdoors event! Registration is $25 for adults, $10 for 12-17yrs and $5 for under 12.
