A Letter from Autumn

(who started this whole thing)

When I was a child, I lived beside Ausable river in the home my dad built. I spent hours staring at frogs, water snails, fish, turtles, and snakes who would climb up the hill to our backyard. I ran through the tall grass and wildflowers behind our house looking for the little wild creatures down in the mud.
 

I then took some time to grow up, as little girls often do. I went away to school. I studied art and sustainability. I drew pictures of waterways, little houses, and my childhood companions from the river and the house.
 

When I came home from school, I saw a mound of top soil standing where once the wildflowers blew. I worked my way down to the river in search of my creature companions, but nearly all had moved away. I'm not sure where they went.
 

We're doing what we can to bring them back.

The artists of WorldRooted love to create for a cause. And what better cause than protecting our waterways and the creatures that live there? Our local ecological heroes teach us how to help restore nature; welcoming back the plants and animals that purify our air, undergird our land and fortify our food. Together, we'll raise up our children to monitor our waters, hold corporations accountable and enjoy the fullness of this earth we share.
 

Froggy Fest is our leap-year party full of interactive education, sweet creepy-crawly friends, fun art projects, yummy treats, cool swag, a concert and an amazing door prize; with proceeds to our local nonprofits! Froggy Fest 2022 raised $27,000 for local ecological education and garnered multiple nominations for the Huron Chamber of Commerce Community Impact Award -- this year, we're "hopping" for the Environmental & Sustainability Award!

Thank you so much for helping us create a better tomorrow. We look forward to partying with you on September 21st, 2024 (rain date Sept 28)!
