Circlewood Retreat – Saturday, August 10 on Camano Island.
Godspace readers who live in or near the Pacific Northwest are invited to Circlewood’s summer retreat on Saturday, August 10 on beautiful Camano Island. For those of you who were fans of Mustard Seed Associate’s annual Celtic prayer retreat, this will be in the same wonderful forest on Camano. The topic is exploring what it means to be an “Ecological Christian,” and will include learning through group discussion, break-out sessions, and special afternoon excursions (with plenty of time to talk with people or enjoy the peace of the forest). For more information (and to register), visit https://www.circlewood.online/summer-retreat.
On a related note, we recently spent a day with foresters Kirk Hanson and Jose Narjava from the Northwest Natural Resource Group. They are helping us put together a long-term Conservation Action Plan that will help us conserve and improve the health of the forest for future generations.
We learned a lot – Kirk took a bore sample from a 75 year old Grand Fir tree and we saw just how much water these great trees hold – check out the video!
