Wildfest

SATURDAY MAY 20, 2017  |  12 PM – 3 PM

Wake up your inner explorer with a new mini-festival celebrating outdoor adventure, native folklore, and a richer relationship with the natural world!

Join us for a variety of earthy art and awareness activities from Trees New York, SacredWaters, and Tommaso Lana, as well as compass work and orienteering with wilderness guide Sam Combs. Earth Living Skills will pop up on-site to share primitive skills and exercises such as flint-knapping and cordage, camouflage, and bowdrill making.

In addition, local organizations like NYC Outward Bound Schools, Coastal Classroom (a program of City Parks Foundation), HarborLAB, Fresh Air Fund, and LIC Community Boathouse will share their upcoming outdoor programming.

Attendees can also enjoy a Native American cultural presentation from the First Nations People of the Americas with Tecumseh Ceaser Matinecock, and Wampanoag Pokanoket and Chief Reggie Herb Dancer Ceaser of the Matinecock tribe Turkey Clan, with hoop dancer Donna Kolm and the Red Storm Drum and Dance Troupe.
