20th Anniversary Pilgrimage

Rachel’s Network 20th Anniversary Pilgrimage

Boothbay Harbor, ME
July 13-15, 2020

Rachel Carson, whose book Silent Spring inspired the environmental movement and led to significant policy change, spent much of her later years in and around Boothbay Harbor, Maine. Visit this idyllic locale for several days of self-reflection, inspiration, and peace. Read one of Rachel’s books: Under the Sea-Edge, The Sea Around Us, The Edge of the Sea, or Silent Spring in advance and discuss with fellow members while exploring a place beloved by Rachel. Part book club, part retreat, all inspiration, this summer journey will connect participants to their sense of wonder and renewal.
