Join us for the grand opening of the Spirit Nest in Lagoon Park on August 19! Come for the festivities, and experience the Spirit Nest! All ages welcome (kids with an adult). Look for the Marin County Free Library Bookmobile, One Tam Roving Ranger, goat petting area, and more!
The Spirit Nest is designed by world-renowned artist Jayson Fann, the nest will be constructed in Lagoon Park using small teams of volunteers in early August 2018, the artist will carefully harvest eucalyptus branches as part of fire fuel management in Terra Linda/Sleepy Hollow Preserve. No large trees will be removed; only stump sprounts, lower limbs, and fallen material are used. On August 7, the Spirit Nest build begins in Lagoon Park. The first step is sorting collected wood. Then small teams of select volunteers will assist the artist in assembling the nest. During the build, Park visitors can watch the organic structure taking shape. Then on August 19, Spirit Nest will be unveiled and artist Jayson Fann will host a free slideshow and talk about his work (Redwood Foyer at 12:00pm).
The Spirit Nest will be installed at Stafford Lake Park in late August, and remain through spring 2019.
