Listen to the call of the Brown-headed Nuthatch so that you'll know what to listen for.
Green Spirits Earth Stewardship
Green Spirits Nature Walk
Saturday, October 13, at 4:00 p.m. | Jonathan Dickinson State Park
The Brown-headed Nuthatch is Back! We will meet in the parking lot of the education center (all the way in, at the end of the access road). Good Shepherd Green Spirit Stephanie Grant will lead the walk. Twelve pairs of Brown-headed Nuthatches have just been reintroduced to the park after 50 years, so even if we don’t see any you will, at the very least, enjoy a delightful walk through their habitat. Find out why when we get together for this one-mile walk. Be prepared for uneven terrain, bring binoculars, insect repellent and a bottle of water. This walk is limited to about 20 people, so please sign up in the Narthex. To enter the park there is a per car fee of $6 for cars with 2-8 people or $4 for one person in a car. We recommend carpooling. You can find more information about this delightful little bird on the Green Spirits page goodsheponline.org.
Green Spirits is an active group here at Good Shepherd. We celebrate creation through service opportunities and various events.
The purpose of our Earth Stewardship Ministry is this:
We, the Green Spirits of Good Shepherd, are called to be faithful stewards of God's gift of CREATION, to proclaim its beauty and goodness by word and deed, here at Church of the Good Shepherd and in our daily lives at home, at work and in the community.
Some of our past events have included Educational Programs, Field Trips, Hikes, Interpretive programs, recycle facility tours, boating, green technology presentations, beach clean-ups and more!
Each year, in honor of Earth Day, we celebrate Earth Stewardship Sunday with a special service, and event or outing and we present our activities schedule for the coming months. if you have an idea for an event that promotes the mission of Good Shepherd Green Spirits, please let us know. We would love to hear from you!
