Spring Creek Project for
Ideas, Nature, and the Written Word
Spring Creek Project is a convening organization that sponsors writers' 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 challenge of the Spring Creek Project is to bring together the practical wisdom of the environmental sciences, the clarity of philosophical analysis, and the creative, expressive power of the written word to find new ways to understand and re-imagine our relation to the natural world.
