A mandala is an integrated structure, organized around a unifying center: Longchenpa. The Winter Solstice Seed Mandala creation is an annual community art-making event to celebrate the coming of the winter season.

Each December, the Open Space Visitor Center hosts the creation of a Mandala made of different kinds of grains and seeds which can be eaten by birds, composted or can quickly biodegrade. Volunteers contribute to the design and help to build the Mandala. The seeds serve to feed migratory birds such as Canada geese and Sandhill cranes. The Mandala remains visible for about one week before returning to nature.

The event is FREE! and is open to all ages. Please call 897-8831 for more information.
