Trees in Winter Full Moon Walk at Coldwater Springs Sunday February 5, 23

Trees in Winter Full Moon Walk at Coldwater Springs.

Trees in Winter Full Moon Walk at Sacred Coldwater Springs

Sunday, February 5, 2023

Gather at the park entrance, 7pm

Park on the Hwy 55 access road

 

Tree bones, arbor silhouettes, holding up the night sky—it is humbling to contemplate our elder tree relatives on a winter’s night. Trees look so solid yet they are 90-percent water. Trees live in community, like people. Trees share nutrients underground.

 

Trees are a great model for humanity once you learn to speak their language.

 

Friends of Coldwater are grateful that the spring still flows although down from 144,000 gallons per day before the Highway 55 reroute in the 1990s to about 66,000 gpd. Water is what climate change is all about: floods, droughts, warming oceans and devastating storms.

 

Coldwater is an acknowledged Dakota sacred site. Friends of Coldwater seek to honor our 11,000-year-old landscape ancestor. We return and return to remember the spirits that feed this Indigenous sacred site.

Full moon walks have been celebrated at Coldwater Springs each month since 2000. Traditional group howl when the moon peeks out.

 

Sunset 5:27 pm (40-minutes later than last full moon) The light is growing!

Moonrise 5:19 pm (61-minutes later than last month)

Moment of the full moon: 12:28 pm

 

DIRECTIONS: Coldwater Springs is between Minnehaha Park & Fort Snelling, in Minneapolis, just North of the Hwy 55/62 interchange. From Hwy 55/Hiawatha, turn East (toward the Mississippi) at 54th Street, take an immediate right, & drive all the way down the frontage road where you can park at the pay meters.

Gather at the cul-de-sac, which is the Coldwater Park entrance.

Free. All welcome.
