PILLAR POINT BEACH
OLYMPIC PENINSULA PROJECTS
Project Director: Lori Ferry'
Supported by OMEC Committee Member, Vic Ferry'
The Olympic Mountain EarthWisdom Circle (OMEC) has adopted Pillar Point Beach on the Strait of Juan de Fuca - working with CoastSavers.org to keep our beautiful Olympic Peninsula coastline pristine. We hope you join us for one of OMEC's clean-ups of Pillar Point beach, followed by a simple land and water blessing. Please contact project director Lori Ferry' for information at Reiki4lifenow@gmail.com
If you've never been to Pillar Point, you'll feel the power there. You'll love the beauty and you will love nurturing the nature and spirit there.
Pillar Point County Park is adjacent to the Highway 112 National Scenic Byway 35miles west of Port Angeles. Once you arrive you will feel the soft breeze blowing off the water and hear the sounds of nature’s shorebirds and gulls.
We will have plastic bags, plastic gloves as well as paper & pen to write down what you find and hand-in when we are done. (This helps CoastSavers with their research)
Please bring anything you need for a day outdoors. Wear shoes appropriate for muddy and rocky conditions, a long sleeved shirt and a hat or other sun and wind protection. Bring your water bottle!
We will hold a simple land & water blessing afterwards; if you would like to bring a drum, rattle, your voice, your prayers and intentions and any offerings please do. Although don't feel you have to; come as you are. Please read the Basic Safety Guidelines in the left hand column before you attend a Clean Up.
Please contact us if you have questions and to chip in
We can't wait to see you there ~ For the Earth, the Waters and all Inhabitants
