Join The Sustainability Project on Sunday, Sept. 30 for its annual “Music and Art in the Forest” open house celebration at the 33-acre Emerson Brook Forest Center, 57 Emerson Brook Drive, in Gilsum.

This year’s event features tours of the center; a guided forest walk on McIntire Trail, named after a high school student who defined the trail as a senior project; nature-inspired art exhibits, live solar powered music, a tour of the Piedmont-Fleischmann off-grid homestead and a solar power raffle.

During the event, visitors will have the opportunity to explore clay with Barb Davis; create a nine-foot puppet with Hilliare Wilder; and connect with nature through journaling with Diana Damato.

The event runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.

While there is no admission fee, donations to support The Sustainability Project’s endeavors will be gratefully accepted.
