Spring Creek Project is a convening organization that sponsors writing residencies, readings, lectures, conversations, and symposia on issues and themes of critical importance to the health of humans and nature. We engage the most daunting and urgent environmental issues of our times while remembering and sharing our perennial sources of joy, wonder, and gratitude.

We believe sharing insights, inspiration, and methods from many perspectives increases our understanding of the place of humans in nature. Our goal is to include participants and audience members from every discipline and persuasion, from creative writing and the other arts, from the environmental and social sciences, from philosophy and other humanistic disciplines.

Our Mission

The Spring Creek Project brings together the practical wisdom of environmental science, the clarity of philosophy, and the transformational power of the written word and the arts to envision and inspire just and joyous relations with the planet and with one another.

Take Heart Book Launch Event

In the launch of Take Heart: Encouragement for Earth's Weary Lovers, we'll think together about how we might collect our thoughts, confront our dismay, obliterate our obstacles, gather our courage, summon our communities, and reclaim our laughter and joy for the work ahead. Live on Zoom on Wednesday, June 1, 6 p.m. Pacific. The event will feature an interview-style conversation between author Kathleen Dean Moore and the book's illustrator, Bob Haverluck, as well as music and book giveaways.
