Roots & Wings takes flight
Monday, October 25, 2021 by Tai Moses
Austin’s annual two-week celebration of nature – with a special emphasis on trees and pollinators – is a hybrid event this year, mixing in-person live events and a curated list of at-home activities in an effort to get the entire community safely involved. The 2021 Roots and Wings Festival, which kicked off yesterday and spans until Nov. 6, aims to help all Austinites attain equitable access to nature, regardless of age, background, ethnicity, religion, or any of that other stuff. The only qualification for participating is a curiosity to learn more about the natural world around you. A great way to get started is to sign the Nature Pledge and then jump into the celebrations with both feet.
