In July, IMPACT went on a field trip to St. John’s Arboretum. We walked a trail taking us through the prairie, wetlands, hardwood forest, and oak savanna. We also walked through willow stick sculpture houses. We had an incredible outdoor adventure on this field trip.
Artist Patrick Dougherty created a masterpiece out of saplings (mostly willow) from St. John’s Abbey Arboretum. There will be a public celebration for the completion of the sculpture from 5-7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 21, at the sculpture site. Submitted photo.
