The Ellen Reid Soundwalk is active now at Pleasure House Point! The Ellen Reid Soundwalk is a work of public art that uses music to illuminate the natural environment. Created by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Ellen Reid, SOUNDWALK is created to “encourage calm reflection and introspection”. Ms. Reid has created musical settings tailored for ‘the sunlit water, tidal marsh, sandy shores and maritime forest’ of PHP. The walk is GPS enabled so just install the free app and download the SOUNDWALK, hit start and begin walking! Go here to the Pleasure House Point page to learn more about it! Go to: Pleasure House Point Park.
Another great activity: everyone is invited to join in on the City Nature Challenge April 30-May 9. The Challenge is to record and identify as many species of plants and animals as possible in the 8 days of the competition. Residents can participate by using the INaturalist app to take images anywhere (even your backyard!) but also especially at Pleasure House Point Park. Identifying items captured via images will take place May 4-9. Staff will be on hand at Pleasure House Point Saturday May 1 and Sunday May 2 from 10-3 both days. On Saturday May 1st, staff will be near the kiosk by the Brock Center and on Sunday May 2nd by the Participating Agencies Sign along Marlin Bay Dr. For more information: go to the Pleasure House Point Park page Pleasure House Point or to https://citynaturechallenge.org/.
