Poems in Place
Just a head's up that this weekend is the Poems in Place event! This awesome statewide program places selected poetry into a designated state park each year in the form of an interpretive sign- goal being to further connect people with place through artistic and literary means. Our lovely Caine's Head State Park is this year's recipient. One poem will be placed at Lowell Pt beach, the other on the trail to Fort McGilvery. Come join this wonderful opportunity to celebrate poetry and wilderness with our community. Events include:
