Join this fun day of celebration and connection to our beloved Lake Champlain and the waters that feed her.  You may begin with yoga offered on the shore of Shelburne Bay at 9:00 AM, or simply arrive, sip your coffee, and enjoy the view. We’ll gather at 10:00 AM for an opening circle of introductions and invocations, followed by opportunities to try your hand at rowing a longboat, paddling a canoe upriver, exploring nature trails, creating collective art, and more. Educational and sacred activities will be guided by experienced field naturalists, educators, artists, faith leaders, and other talented souls. You’re welcome to bring a picnic or purchase a bag lunch on site. Boats will be provided - no private crafts please.

Open to the public, for ages 5 and up.
