FOREST LISTENING ROOM
CONTEMPLATING THE SOUNDS OF NATURE

EVENT: OCTOBER 5 (9:30 - 12:00)

Take a guided sound walk - Hear recorded stories of past and present residents - Listen to music and sound in nature - Share and record your own forest stories

Do you like the sounds and stories of the forest? Flowing water, bird calls, wind, plantlife, and the voices of past and present residents? Sound artist Brian Harnetty will lead a morning of meditative hiking and listening in the Wayne National Forest. Harnetty believes that listening to the forest can help transform both the land and our lives.

Participants gather at Tecumseh Lake near Shawnee. We begin with a quiet “soundwalk” on a newly built 2-mile loop through the forest, paying attention to sounds and noises all around. Returning to Tecumseh Lake, a guided listening session takes place. There, we sit and listen in silence, followed by music and archival recordings of past and present people who live in the forest. Finally, we share our own stories about the forest (optional), and how it has influenced our lives. A provided lunch follows at the Backtracks Food Truck in Shawnee.

Proceeds from this event will go to Southern Perry Summer Youthshops, to help provide outdoor activities for local children.
