Wakarusa Wetlands Celebration

9:00 AM – 11:00 AM

Meet local authors & artists as they share their creative work, connections to the wetlands and more of the outside world--enhancing our connections to nature, a sense of place and community.

We’ll begin at the Medicine Wheel Earthwork south of the Haskell Campus buildings with a special land recognition with Dr. Daniel Wildcat, a Yuchi member of the Muscogee Nation of Oklahoma.

Authors & Artists include:

  • Dr. Daniel Wildcat, Yuchi Member of the Muscogee Nation, Author

Lawrence Public Library is partnering with Haskell Indian Nations University and Raven Book Store to offer this celebration of the wetlands.

Feel free to bring a lawn chair or blanket and a refillable water bottle to reduce use of plastic; we’ll be outside! Kids are welcome, although no specific kid-friendly activities are planned.

Plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early to allow time to walk from the road to the Medicine Wheel. A Land rover will be available for mobility assistance over the uneven ground.
