Snow Snake Throwing Competition this Friday, March 1st!

Hello Green Living Bemidji followers! I don’t have a full blog post to share, but wanted to update you on an exciting event coming up on Friday!

If you attended Sustainable Tuesdays’ snow snake carving workshop in January or if you have a snow snake of your own that you’d like to throw, be sure to head over to Bemidji State University this Friday, March 1st to participate in an open division!

Bob Shimek, who helped teach our group how to carve snow snakes, is organizing a snow snake throwing event on BSU’s football field. There will be an open division for community members to participate in.  Anyone is welcome to participate or to watch!

The event will begin around 10:00am on Friday, March 1st and go into the afternoon.  Those interested can meet at the American Indian Resource Center on Bemidji State’s campus.  The snow snake throwing will take place on BSU’s football field.

And don’t forget tomorrow’s Sustainable Tuesday event – we’re going to have Levi Brown, Environmental Director at the Leech Lake DRM speak with us about treaty rights and sustainability! 5:30 to 7:30pm at the Rail River Folk School! Hope to see you there!

Enjoy your Monday, everyone!

As always, our program depends on your input and feedback, and we welcome your ideas and suggestions to broaden our community. Sustainable Tuesdays feature a variety of learning opportunities focused on sustainability that connect our beautiful, vibrant community and is a partnership program with the Indigenous Environmental Network, MN GreenCorps, Rail River Folk School and BSU’s Sustainability Office.
