Big Stone Lake Stories Video Poem
August 14th, 2018: Two days into camp and I already feel like we've
traveled so far together. At sunset I was sitting on a dock, listening
to the lake. Two fish jumped. There were crickets. -Jonee Kulman Brigham, Full Spring Studio, LLC
Can you guess where this is?
The Big Stone Lake Stories team is excited to share this project with you that invites youth from around the Big Stone Lake area to a camp of exploring water through art, science, mapping, hiking, and meeting the many community members that are part of the water story of this place. The camp takes place at Bonanza Education Center, but the experience takes place all along Big Stone Lake.
This website is being built right now, to connect you to project flyers and resources. As the camp starts, you'll see GIS (Geographic Information System) Interactive Story Maps grow with detail, photos, stories and artwork by youth. There's also ways for the community to participate with a crowdsource story map coming soon, and activities at Corn Fest on August 18th.
Explore the website, and come back soon for more details. Also, for frequent updates, follow Bonanza Education Center on Facebook at this LINK.
We hope to see you and hear your stories!
