Labyrinths resemble mazes but are continuous routes with no false turns. Meditation and contemplation are typical byproducts for those who walk them. The Silver Creek Labyrinth Project in NW Washington state is a collaborative volunteer effort.  Designed by (OEN member) Chuck Nafziger, the path is made of concrete pavers bedded in sand and gravel. It leads to a footbridge that provides access to a bench on the shore of the creek.  Surrounding garden beds will soon be filled with native medicinal and edible plants that will be offered to the public for harvesting. An unveiling at noon on St. Patrick’s Day will reveal the peaceful pathway, and all are welcome to come ask questions and get found—not lost—as they enter the labyrinth for the first time.
