In everything the Spring Creek Project undertakes, we try to bring a two-fold motivation:
  • Since the challenges to natural and human thriving are daunting and urgent, we commit ourselves to engaging the most important issues of our moment; In order to sustain our energy and well-being as we engage these challenges, we commit ourselves to embodying and sharing perennial sources of joy, wonder, and gratitude.
  • Believing that there are many ways to know the world, our goal is to include participants and audience members from the sciences and social sciences, from creative writing and other arts, from philosophy and other humanistic disciplines to share insights, inspiration, and methods to further our understanding of the place of humans in nature.
