San Juan County Land Bank Celebrates 25th Anniversary
What inspires you to get outside? In celebration of its 25th Anniversary, as well as National Poetry Month, the Land Bank invites the community to submit nature themed poems for a poetry trail!
The Land Bank, along with its partners, SJI Library, SJI National Historical Park, SJI Trails Committee, Lime Kiln Point State Park, and Friends of Lime Kiln Society (F.O.L.K.S.), will display poems along trails through SJC Land Bank’s Limekiln and Deadman Bay Preserves, Lime Kiln Point State Park, and at American Camp in the SJI National Historical Park during the month of April.
Poems can be anything from haiku to rhyming to free verse, original work or a favorite published author, but must be 14 lines or less, due to layout restrictions. All ages welcome!
Poems can be dropped off (printed on 8 ½ x 11 paper) to the SJI Library front desk or emailed to clacher [@] sjlib [.] org. Poems must have the author and title in order to be accepted; original works are highly encouraged as the Land Bank would love to hear how the outdoors inspires Islanders!
Deadline for submissions is Saturday, February 21st, with a maximum of 30 poems to be chosen.
