Imagine a forest – with drums.
The Newport Community Drum Circle is joining with the Oregon Coast Community Forest Association this weekend to celebrate Earth Day, forests, and drums at Big Creek Park and Newport’s relatively new 80+ acre Forest Park.
The family oriented rhythmical celebration takes place Saturday (April 20) from 1:00 to 3;00 pm, rain or shine, in the covered Big Creek Park picnic pavilion, featuring the Thunder & Lightness Ensemble and a special all-ages Earth Day Drum Circle.
Free admission and light refreshments (or take your own picnic), everyone is welcome to join in, and no musical experience is required. Bring your own drum (and a folding chair if you have one) or borrow one of theirs.
The Oregon Coast Community Forest Association acquired and is restoring Forest Hill, Lincoln County’s 17.5-acre Oregon Coast Community Forest located between Newport and Toledo.The non-profit group also worked with the City of Newport to rezone and rededicate the more than 80 acres of spruce forest, between Big Creek Park and the old swimming pool site near Sam Case Elementary School that was renamed in 2012 as Forest Park.
Big Creek Park is fully accessible and has open grassy areas, parking, playground equipment, picnic tables, two BBQ grills, and extensive hiking trails in the adjacent forest. 2510 NE Big Creek Road, in north Newport.
