At Beautiful Shorebird Park

Berkeley, CA at the Berkeley Marina
“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black curious eyes of a child – our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”
- Thich Nhat Hahn, The Miracle of Mindfulness
Please join us for this free potluck picnic to honor and celebrate our walk on earth. Bring food and drinks to share, meet regional peacebuilders, celebrate our diverse culture, take in the land and the water, and have fun. Bring literature from your groups, musical instruments, games, family, friends, and good thoughts. Gardners, please bring any fruits and vegetables to share. If you can, bring card tables, folding chairs and blankets to sit on. We will provide plates, cups and utensils. Southern Californians and other visitors, if you are in the San Francisco Bay area, please drop by.
Shorebird Park is off HW 80/580 taking the University Ave exit toward the Bay in the Berkeley Marina area, 160 University Ave - just beyond the Adventure Playground and near the Shorebird nature center, with parking across from the park.
