Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature -- the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.

We also participate in cleanups with the Sierra Club. Help our feathered friends by picking up trash at two spoil islands just off Pop Stansell Park in Palm Harbor that we have adopted. Discover the perils faced by nesting birds who must share these islands with campers and high tides that often bring debris. Men, women and older children are welcome to help.
Participants must bring their own kayaks or canoes. Visit the Suncoast Sierra site for details.

This park, a sacred site to the Native Americans, has a canopy of live oaks and overlooks Tampa Bay. We start with gentle stretching exercises and include time for a short nature reading and silent walking meditation. Rise&Shine!(no charge). September- May
