Celebrating the Lake and Sacred Waters

Saturday, September 9, 2017
From 9:00 am to 3:30 pm

Saturday, September 9th (rain date Sept. 16th), from 9 AM to 3:30 PM

Shelburne Bay Park parking area, Shelburne

The celebration is free, open to the public, ages 5 and up.  Boats are provided. Space is limited and advance registration is required.  Click here to register.

Join this fun day of celebration and connection to our beloved Lake Champlain and the waters that feed her.  You can begin with yoga offered on the shore of Shelburne Bay at 9 AM, or simply arrive and sip your coffee and enjoy the view. We'll gather at 10 AM for an opening circle of introductions & invocations, followed by opportunities to try your hand at rowing a longboat, paddling a canoe up river, exploring nature trails, creating collective art and more. Educational and sacred activities will be guided by faith leaders, field naturalists, educators, artists, and other talented souls.

 Participants are welcome to bring a picnic or purchase a tasty lunch on site. Boats will be provided - no private crafts please.
