What does it mean to listen deeply to ourselves, the land, and to our queer/trans community? In this three-hour affinity event for queer & trans people led by queer & trans park staff, we'll explore this question through sound meditation, auditory nature observation, tending the land, and collective creativity.

Come wearing clothes you don't mind getting dirty, and bring a favorite hat and sunscreen (we have extra hats/sunscreen if you need them!). Accessibility notes: currently, this program will involve climbing a set of stairs, and kneeling on the ground to weed. Please let us know if we can support you with any accommodations to make this or future events accessible to you.


Groups of five or more require special arrangements and must be confirmed in advance. Please review the List of Available Projects and fill out the Group Project Request Form.
