This free event is open to all who feel drawn to this project, whether you are a visitor or a local resident. Register now and be a part of this incredible experience!
Date and Time: July 11-14, 9:00 am to Noon
Location: North side of the Jim Guy Trail at the north end of the Dark Sky Preserve
What to Expect:
In this unique endeavor, we will collaboratively gather and select stones, which will be thoughtfully placed to mark the rings of the labyrinth. Working with respect, deep listening, and positive intention, we will lay the rocks, one-by-one, forming an outer ring with entrances in each direction, as well as an inner labyrinth with an entrance and exit to the east.
This event is more than just a workshop; it is an opportunity for individuals on the island to engage in a contemplative, peaceful, and nature-connected experience. By participating in the creation of the labyrinth, you will deepen your awareness, observational capacity, and connection to yourself and the surrounding environment.
- Unleash Your Creativity: Guided by Rosemarie, an artist, dancer, and community builder, you will have the chance to tap into your own creativity and explore the power of intention. She will facilitate a process that brings individuals into a deeper connection with themselves and nature before entering the cordoned-off space. Take a moment to connect with the earth, the sky, and the stones, and discover the profound impact of intention in your life.
- Community-Building: By participating in this event, you become part of a vibrant and inclusive community. Connect with like-minded individuals, form meaningful relationships, and contribute to the shared vision of creating a space for reflection and growth.
- Nature Connection: Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Dark Sky Preserve as we work with the land, leveling the soil and gathering rocks from various areas of the property. Engage in a mindful process that allows you to connect with nature on a deeper level, enhancing your sense of belonging and interconnectedness.
This event is a gift to the people and families on the island who wish to experience the wonders of the eco park without fees. There is no cost to attend; however, we kindly request that you register and sign a waiver as a precautionary measure. Safety is important to us, even when dropping stones accidentally.
Rosemarie, a passionate artist, dancer, and motivator, has a profound interest in community-building, nature connection, and the transformative power of intention. With years of experience as a motivational art and dance instructor, home schooler, and musician, she delights in guiding individuals toward deeper connections with their own creativity and awareness.

Orientation to the DarkSky Preserve, Campground & Observation Field
The DarkSky Preserve has a no white light policy after sunset: no campfires; please have red filters for your flashlights, headlamps, and camping lamps; plan to arrive by sunset to drive a car in. The gate will be closed to cars after sunset.
The DarkSky Preserve or DSP includes an observation field plus campsites, the Stargazing Cabin, and Milky Way Bunkie for overnight guests. As a courtesy please keep voices low and cell phones on silent after sunset
No white light is allowed in the DSP including no campfires, cell phone screens, or vehicle headlights.
While we encourage event participants to walk without artificial light as much as possible, as a safety measure please be sure to bring your own flashlights and/or headlamps with AMBER or RED filters sufficient to colour and significantly dim the light shining through (you can attach cloth or cellophane paper with tape).
Astronomy guides will be at the front and back of the group with amber or red light sources.
On standard settings, cell phones should not be used as flashlights, or for taking pictures due to the white light of their screens and flashes. Alternatively, you can download an AMBER OR RED LIGHT app for your smartphone.
No laser pointers of any kind or strength (other than in use by our astronomy staff).
The DSP gate is closed to vehicles after sunset.
During all astronomy events, for safety all guests should stay with their guide and the group at all times. If you need to leave the event early for any reason, please be sure to notify one of the astronomy guides before you go.
All Event tickets are non-refundable. However, should DarkSky Preserve need to cancel an event, you will receive the option of either an opportunity to come to one of our future events, or a credit voucher in the amount of your purchase to be used at the Park during the same season, both pending availability.
All event tickets are non-refundable.
Events are held in all sky and weather conditions except those the Eco Park determines to be hazardous (eg. lightning, high winds).
Event tickets can be transferred to another date this season (pending availability) only if the Eco Park cancels the event. We will notify you by email in the event of a cancellation in advance.
