UU Fellowship’s Slate of Earth-friendly Activities

The UU Fellowship in Ephraim will celebrate Earth Day with several activities in April.

The kick-off will be the screening of the award-winning documentary Rivers and Tides about the British artist Andy Goldsworthy, who creates intricate and ephemeral sculptures from natural materials. In this film Goldsworthy creates works of art with ice, driftwood, leaves, stone, dirt and snow in open fields, beaches, rivers, creeks and forests. With each new creation, he carefully studies the energetic flow and transitory nature of his work. One special characteristic of Goldsworthy’s work is that each piece interacts with nature, both statically like a photo or painting, and temporally. The work is born and dies, and flows back into its environment. The show starts at 4:30 pm on April 17 at the UU Fellowship.

On April 22 at 10 am there will be a talk by Dick Smythe, a retired entomologist, speaking on “Two Extraordinary American Environmentalists.”

A forum will also be held on April 25 at 3 pm with the Door County Land Trust that will discuss land protection and preservation.

Culminating the month’s observance on April 28 will be a day-long service project at the new Land Trust Grand View property in Ellison Bay. Members and friends of the UU Fellowship will create trails, clear brush and debris; build benches for the property, plant trees and other activities to prepare the site for its formal dedication June 23.
