THAW: Our Place Summercamp 2016 Scholarship Fun-raiser, March 5, 1-8pm

Every year, Biocitizen & the Lone Wolf Cafe hold a fun-raising dinner to provide Our Place Summercamp scholarships so kids, who might not otherwise be able to, can spend a week off-the-screen-deep-in-the-green exploring our place, the Nonotuck biome.

The value of these scholarships cannot be underestimated, because amazing things happen during the 5 days we spend in the field together. We strive to get as many kids, from as many different kinds of backgrounds, as we can into the field so they can discover 1st-hand, and together, that the world is more alive, interesting and miraculous than they ever expected. Our Place Summercamp provides the conceptual and physical space for kids to explore & find out that there are worlds out there they never knew about, and discover valuable parts of themselves that—thanks to “nature deficit disorder”—are otherwise left dormant and unnourished.

This year, the dinner is on Saturday, March 5th and will be held at the Glow Room in Indian Hollow, Chesterfield.

At 1 pm, we’ll have a guided walk, & explore part of the federally-designated Wild and Scenic Westfield River.

At 3 pm, hors d’oeuvres will be served, some of them by the 2 cozy fires we’ll have going outside.

At 5 pm, dinner will be served; scroll down to see the lavish menu that Rob Watson has created for us.

    WHAT IS BIOCITIZEN? The word “biocitizen” is a contraction of “biotic citizen,” a term and idea conceived by Aldo Leopold (1887–1948) who is widely celebrated for conceiving the “land ethic.” A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability, and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise. A […]

    Charlie is a recent graduate from Wesleyan University who is just beginning to get his footing in the big wide world and figure out where he’s going.
