A Blue Mind evening with author, Wallace J. Nichols, bringing together individuals, businesses and organizations in Austin who have an economic, emotional and/or environmental stake to Keep Austin Blue.
Our mission began as a passion – for water, outdoors and the activities that provided emotional peace and confidence just by doing them. We have spent a lifetime devoted to taking individuals and groups into nature and on the water. At first it was just a “way of life” and we knew it made others feel better, friends who were having difficult times, dealing with illness, stress, anxiety or loss. When we lost one of our own, StarFlight nurse Kristin McLain, to a flight rescue incident, we were suddenly surrounded by first responders dealing with loss and PTS; parents with struggling youth; adopted children searching for solace; and individuals battling illness or grief – all asking us to take them to nature, out upon the water.
Our goal is to inspire, empower and fund a collaborative movement of education, experiences and events where nature and #WaterIsMedicine.
