Are you experiencing climate grief? Let’s come out in public to express our sadness about the species we’ve already lost to human carelessness and the losses that seem certain to come. We’ll gather at the Mill City Ruins and process across the Stone Arch Bridge to the park on the other side. In the park, we’ll have an open time for people to give eulogies, play or sing a song, read a poem, or whatever seems appropriate in remembrance of the animals, plants, and insects that have left us forever. You’re invited to bring something that represents a creature you’re especially grieving. We will have a few animal banners to carry, but you are encouraged to bring your own.
