Everything is connected. Join Field Meridians in an exercise to visualize the underground mycelial networks of Brower Park. Each participant will leave with a toolkit for mapping their own neighborhood tree families.

In an interactive lecture and park stroll, the group will draw from historical records of the park, oral histories from local neighbors, and the most recent scientific papers about mycelial communication to create a group artwork.
