About the Event

Earth Day 21 – a perfect day to explore for ephemeral spring wildflowers, like trout lily, bloodroot, trillium, violet, and spring beauty. Meander past what feels like a mountain cascade. Then spend some meditative moments on Council Rock, at the base of Teedyuscung, leader of the Lenni Lenape, who could teach us a lot about our relationship with Earth. While on Council Rock, we will briefly discuss the Lenni Lenape regard for our planet and we’ll also discuss the “land ethic,” a concept that originates from Aldo Leopold. 

Location: Meet on Forbidden Drive by the trailhead at the intersection of Forbidden Drive and Bells Mill Road.
