The songs in the show celebrate the diversity of life on Earth from whales to wolves, from magpies to macaws, from the teeming oceans to the frozen tundra, from rugged coastlines to the misty rain-forests and tell the sad stories of environmental disasters. But all are sung with the note of hope that with renewed effort and dedication and a renewed honoring of the Earth, we can reverse the negative course we’ve set in the past and move into the next century as guardians of the Earth’s diversity, as advocates of conservation and preservation, and as custodians of a Living Planet.
Arts Trek Programs are made possible, in part, with funds from the Decentralization Program, a re-grant program of the NY State Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the NY State Legislature, and administered by the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts.
