A Winter Poetry Walk

Experience the Monument’s spectacular paleontological marvels and collect “picturesque” words, explore language, and create a three-line haiku.

Learn to write a nature poem. Join volunteer interpreter Steven Veatch and discover your inner poet.

The program will begin inside the visitor center with a brief discussion on poetry writing techniques. Participants will then explore part of the Monument while hiking on easy nature trails (less than one mile). During the walk experience the Monument’s spectacular paleontological marvels and collect “picturesque” words, explore language, and create an optional three-line haiku while enjoying the winter day. The afternoon is an exceptional opportunity to be immersed in a natural setting and unleash individual creativity in a fun and supportive environment.
