Past Projects

A Glimpse into Our Past

Since 2004, Still Moon Arts has worked to connect nature and the arts. From Still Creek Stories to Birds on Parade, our projects have been realized though the hard work of staff, artists, storytellers, knowledge-keepers, community members, and volunteers. You can learn about some of these projects below.
