The mission of Nature Fest is to cultivate and inspire a sense of community, diversity, caretaking, and pride
through the use of the arts and nature on the Divide.
“Prize the natural spaces and shorelines most of all, because once they're gone, with rare exceptions they're gone forever. In our bones we need the natural curves of hills, the scent of chapparal, the whisper of pines, the possibility of wildness. We require these patches of nature for our mental health and our spiritual resilience.”
