Event Description:

In this experiential poetry workshop, middle and high school students will explore their personal relationship to the natural world surrounding them. Directly engaging with nature and guided by William Stafford’s poem "Ask Me" ("What the river says, that is what I say."), youth participants will create their own poems in response to the Salmon River habitat. Using all their senses of observation, young poets will discover what lessons this rich habitat offers us.
