Park Walk | Foraging Tour: Juneberries, Savory Gingko Nuts, Mushrooms and More (in-person)

Fruits and berries such as red juneberries will be ripe now. You'll encounter the deep taproots of burdock which are really highly nutritious and tasty. This is also the best time to gather wild nuts. You'll learn how to harvest and prepare rich-tasting black walnuts and savory gingko nuts. There will also be plenty of leafy herbs and greens. We'll be looking for winter cress, epazote, sheep sorrel, chickweed, lamb's-quarters, wood sorrel, epazote, curly dock, bitter dock, field garlic, garlic mustard, and poor-man's-pepper. The tour will last for about 4 hours. Please wear a mask and observe social distancing.

Maddie is broke and unemployed, with a chronically ill kid who needs surgery. She has one thing going for her: she's an extraordinary fencer.

Workshop | Indigenous Peoples' Day: Meditation and Compassion Sharing Circle (online)


An offering to sit in honor of Indigenous Peoples' Day. In the United States, the day is one opportunity to recognize and remember that Native people are the first inhabitants of the Americas. Across the world, colonization has resulted in the genocide and oppression of many Indigenous peoples. Tony Pham will offer a land acknowledgment and guide a 30-minute meditation before facilitating a safer space during which participants are welcome to share expressions of compassion and wishes for the end of suffering. The event will conclude with a dedication of merit that holds an intention to center Indigenous peoples in our hearts.

Opera | Met Opera: Wagner’s Siegfried (virtual)


The Met assembled an ideal cast for François Girard’s acclaimed production of Wagner’s final masterpiece. Jonas Kaufmann in the title role of the fool “made wise by compassion” is as convincing vocally as he is haunting dramatically, delivering a thoroughly moving portrayal. René Pape is equally compelling as Gurnemanz, the veteran Knight of the Grail, and Katarina Dalayman thrillingly brings out the dual sides of Kundry. Peter Mattei is Amfortas, the anguished ruler of the Grail’s kingdom, and Evgeny Nikitin sings the evil magician Klingsor. Daniele Gatti on the podium reveals both the serenity and dramatic tension of what may be Wagner’s greatest score.
