Eco-Retreat


An exciting opportunity is coming up in Ohio:

The Third Annual International Environmental Storytelling Retreat starts Friday, April 9, 2010 at 6:30pm and ends Sunday, April 11, 2010 at 12:30pm.

Held in Yellow Springs, Ohio, the retreat is a learning opportunity for environmentalists, amateur and professional storytellers, educators, interpretive naturalists and anyone with an interest in telling stories to further our understanding of the natural world are welcome to attend.

The retreat is organized by the environmental discussion group which is a part of the National Storytelling Network. It is hosted and organized in the Vale community by storyteller Eric Wolf. A public performance on Saturday night of the retreat is a fund raiser for the Tecumseh Land Trust nonprofit.

The 2010 Eco-tellers Retreat is free... (did I read that correctly? Yes, it says FREE!) But limited to first 25 people who register. Related costs for attendees include transportation to the event, housing at the event (camping $24 a night or motel $59 a night) and dinner and breakfast on your own. The website says that "Currently lunch on Saturday is sponsored and we hope to sponsor more meals. Housing can be provided for anyone who is dying to attend and can not due to cost." You can't beat this for a weekend of storytelling, learning and being with like-minded people now, can you?

You can find more information and register on the event's web page. A schedule, directions, information on lodging, and a report on past retreats along with other information is also on the web page.
For more information contact Eric at (937) 767-8696.

I hear you. I'm still not ready to start back into storytelling things, so I am not attending this year. But it sounds like a great opportunity, and I know many of those attending--all are excellent storytellers so it should be fun.
