Acknowledging Lands and Waters we call home
Acknowledging the lands and waters of the Indigenous nations before us we are humbled to imagine the gentle wake of the canoes and the blade of the paddles gently and gracefully marking the waters.
Using the lands in a good way, leaving only a soft foot print on the land
and caring for the gifts she provides.
Wind and trees working in unison, still singing the songs today as in the hundreds of years past.
We acknowledge these Sacred Gifts of Mother Earth in our local territories of the Indigenous peoples.

Humphrey Nature Trails:
Creative Community Happens Here
Whispering River Music’s Creative Communities project is based on an old storyteller’s saying:
“When you tell one story, you should always tell two. That way the stories will lean on each other”.
The first of these, the “Humphrey Nature Trails: Creative Community Happens Here” project, invites families and community members to tell their own stories in response to twelve Covid-19 art installations along Rabbit Run Trail built by the students of Humphrey Public School.
