Event Description

  The extinction of a species generally goes unnoticed and unremarked, except by indigenous peoples, naturalists and other lovers of places.

We are in the midst of what is called the 6th Extinction. An estimated 1 in 4 mammals are threatened with extinction. Also 12% of all plants, 1 in 8 birds, 1 in 3 known amphibians, and fully half of all known species of fish.*

 This circle will be a time to come together in remembrance of those who are gone. 

We will fill the space left in their absence with the sound of their names, celebrating the ebb and flow of life and the interconnectedness of all, with prayers and blessing for the world.

 $5-$15 Donation Requested to cover space rental
