August Programs at Shepherd’s Corner

A Morning Reflection on the Hidden Life of Trees: Reflections from Peter Wohlleben’s Book
Saturday, August 19th 9:30 am – Noon
Suggested Donation: $5
Facilitated by Sr. Anne Lythgoe

What might we learn from the forest about community, caring, death and regeneration? Inspired by the international bestseller The Hidden Life of Trees, by Peter Wohlleben, Dominican Sister of Peace Anne Lythgoe will explore the interconnectedness of ecosystems, and lessons trees learn to survive and thrive as beautiful pillars of the forest. The morning will include some reflections on aspects of the Hidden Life of Trees, time for quiet communion with Shepherd’s Corner landscape, and group conversation.

Open to visitors on Fridays!

Fridays, we will be open to visitors from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. Check our calendar to find out which Fridays we are open (until mid-November)!

Instead of a suggested donation we ask that you please bring a donation of shelf stable food. These items will be given to local food pantries to help lessen food inequity and insecurity in the area.

We invite you to spend time at Shepherd’s Corner Ecology Center. Come walk our meditation trail and the outdoor labyrinths. We do ask that all visitors check in at the office upon their arrival. We will be closed in the event of inclement weather. If you are considering visiting, we ask that you contact us either by calling (614) 866-4302 or by emailing and letting us know.
