HEARTLAND ALL SPECIES PROJECTS

 -- PLEASE HELP US TO BUILD THESE PAGES as a living archive of the spontaneous cultural movement of All Species over the last 40 years . Let this page serve as beautiful meaningful connection between people however distant - living together within an Ethos of the Earth -

   There are now All Species Days & allspecies educational events being presented at any time of year around the world in many countries - All of them are autonomous , made by their own community ~ with a little help from our friends , curriculum .

   The following list is testimony to the strength of a good idea - There have now been uncountable "all-species" events ( a science phrase but carrying similar connotation & respect as the native american derivative  "All Our Relations" or the Bhuddist "All Sentient Beings " 

   Perhaps while looking through this list you realize that you know of content for these pages - other ASP events, big or little, photos ,videos, weblinks, contact people,potential events etc - Please do hit the contact button on the Home page - and send us a note atallspecies@earthlink.net -  Whatever positive you have to contribute to these pages is welcome as well as constructive critique.     

San Fransisco - 1978 & 79   

   Since 1978 in San Fransisco when a group of people from Bolinas decided to theatrically represent various species in mask & costume to draw attention to the plight of endangered species - reinforced by the Reinhabitory Theater of Planet Drum Peter Berg & the press releases of "Ponderosa Pine" - Since then  many finely attuned instinctual community artists & citizen motivators have come forth in their communities to produce All Species Days , events & educational programs . - videos & photos of these events will be posted later in the summer of '13-
