Under bluebird Colorado skies and temperature in the 70's, 150 people gathered for a relaxing afternoon on the grounds of the historic Rockledge Ranch on the Garden of the Gods.

The event began with a Native American ceremony to consecrate the ground. Everyone gathered in a circle holding hands while the ceremony was performed by a Native American in full feathered head dress.

On the stage speakers alternated with live music on the stage, while information on local ecological initiatives was available under a tent. As a break from the activities, guided half-hour nature walks into the "Garden of the Gods" were offered.
