Becoming Andy Goldsworthy for a day

A few weeks ago, we explored the Wonderlandesque outdoor art exhibit, Presidio Habitats, sprinkled along walking trails in the park. To help nascent artists (particularly families) get their Andy Goldsworthy on, the national park is hosting a build-your-own nature sculptor event this Saturday at Rob Hill campground from 10 am to 2 pm.

Craft a fox den, your dream fort, an offering to Gaia, a birdhouse or whatever you can conjure up using pine cones, stones, and other park stuff. Though don’t get too attached to your master piece, or plan on bringing a camera. It’ll have to be dismantled by day’s end.

The event is free and look here for more info.
