Let's all welcome Spring and help the Wizards cast spells to activate and protect the pollinators for the new season!
Hello Dear Earthlings of Ashlandia!
We love the tradition of celebrating the first day of each season with you. Join us Monday, March 20th, 2023 on the Ashland Plaza at 7pm to prepare for our Lantern Procession to the Spring Wishing Tree in Lithia Park. This is a special celebration that is for those who want to help make a lovely experience for even the very youngest children while celebrating the Spring Equinox, co-hosted by The Secret StoryWorld and ScienceWorks Museum.
Come dressed for the weather as your most magical Spring Selves. Bring a lantern and tinkling bells.
When dusk arrives, follow Owl & Raven of the Secret World in a procession around the pond with your lanterns. Along the way, see if you can find all the Pollinators sleeping in their miniature habitats along the path to the Spring Wishing Tree. We will ring our little bells as we procession to wake them up from their long winter naps!
Then, when we arrive at the Spring Wishing Tree it will be time to tie our wishes on the tree.
Here's a photo from our Spring Wishing Tree of 2022.
