Trails Day Poetry

As part of Mariposa County’s celebration of National Trails Day on June 4, 2022 the Arts Council invited the community to enjoy live poetry readings, compose original poetry and create artwork in response to prompts that explored feelings and experiences with trails, waterways and wild spaces. Trails Day Poetry received over 100 submissions of unique poems written by community members of all ages. Selected works can be read in the Trails Day Poetry Chapbook, curated by Megan Levad Beisner.

This special project was created in alignment with the Mariposa County Creative Placemaking Strategy, leveraging the arts to engage public spaces and recreation.
