Nature Sounds

This new series was developed to introduce lovers of nature and music to the harmony of human-made music in natural settings. Immerse yourself in this unique listening experience that pairs acoustic music with songs of the wold. Each program begins with an introduction to the park's current music makers, followed by an hour-long concert. After the concert, a guided nature walk will encourage active listening and creating connections between our own music and that of nature.

Goods From Your Woods

The forest provides us with so much more than just firewood and lumber. From ginseng to goats, agroforestry (the science of integrating both trees and additional crops for environmental and economic benefit) can be a sustainable and profitable land management practice. Landowners come and be inspired by agroforestry ideas for your own property. Whether you own one acre or 200, there is an agroforestry system that can meet your goals. The program begins with a presentation followed by a short walk, where agroforestry applications will be discussed for RCA Community Park. For ages 18 yrs. and up. Instructor: Josh Nickelson
