Waldorf walks on wild side
If you see a grizzly bear charging down Hall Street on Friday, don’t be alarmed... it’s just the students from the Nelson Waldorf School celebrating Earth Month.
The Nelson Waldorf School is inviting the community to participate in the Wild Walk — a parade of students, community organizations and individuals celebrating the wild species that inhabit the mountains, lakes and skies around Nelson.
This year, Earth Day celebrates its 41st year and the Waldorf school is celebrating a month of environmental activities. As part of these activities, students are learning about endangered plants and animals in their own backyard. The Wild Walk is an opportunity to celebrate those species and renew our commitments to preserving the habitats in which they live.
The school invites all those who care about the environment to this celebration.
Participants will be led to Lakeside Park by the Moving Mosaic Samba Band, after which members from the community including representatives from the Nelson CARES Society’s Earth Matters program, the West Kootenay EcoSociety, the Young Naturalists and the Waldorf School, will share their vision of a better future for our wild species.
If you are interested in honouring those without a voice, strengthening your connection to the Earth and making some noise, please join them with your outrageous costumes, colourful signs and banners on Friday at 11 a.m. at the Prestige Inn.
