Who we are

The Spring Creek Project is a convening organization that sponsors residencies, readings, lectures, conversations, and other events and programming 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.



Inner Nature

The new Inner Nature podcast series is a collection of conversations between thought-leaders exploring the intersection of contemplative practice and environmental action.

The series is a collaborative endeavor between the Spring Creek Project and the Contemplative Studies Initiative.
