Weather Ward – PaganSquare – PaganSquare – Join the conversation!

This post was inspired by a blog post by Heron Michelle, “Hurricane Magick Index: Protection, Opportunity, Action”

This is a weather ward that is to be used once a storm is very close.  It does not attempt to steer the storm away, rather it works to create a calmer microclimate around your home or business. I am a great believer in keeping weather workings as local as possible in most cases.

Nature Nights: Bat & Moth Night — The Woodlands

Explore The Woodlands after dark – look for the bats who live here and learn all the ways moths are cool! Pack a picnic and bring your flashlights for the search for our resident moths with the Academy of Natural Sciences. They will be here to guide us through a night filled with the science of bats and moths.

The BAT WALK is back! We’ll start at the Hamilton Mansion and walk as a group through the cemetery to the highest point in center circle. Bats don’t fly until it’s dark out, so the Bat Walk will start after sundown!
