October Creature of Focus: Kelpie
Purchase Date: NOW SOLD OUT! September 12 @ 5 PM EST
Shipping Date: By or before Oct. 15!
October's Trillium Forest Discovery Box creature and theme will be the Kelpie! Haunting rivers, streams and other waterbodies, this magical water-horse beast is known for being unfriendly to humans. It is said that those who have tried to mount and ride one of these malevolent spirits would meet an untimely death as they are taken into the body of water never to return to the surface. Although, something is different about the Kelpies in the Trillium Forest...they are actually only a few inches in size! I believe this is attributed to the fact that there are only small streams available in this region for them to inhabit. While they might be short-statured, they are still plenty vicious. Their venomous bite is very painful and can leave a toe or a finger throbbing for hours after!
The mission of this subscription box is to share an in-depth look at the creatures I discover in the Trillium Forest and to provide a fun and magical way to connect with the real, natural world. Every other month, I release a box with a creature of focus and a nature-based activity that corresponds with it!
Every box comes with the following:
- 1 or 2 limited edition, blind box creature sculptures (depending on what tier you purchase)
- A nature-based activity that corresponds with the time of year and/or creature
- A vinyl sticker of the creature of focus
- My field notes about the creature
- A herbal highlight card, where we learn about a medicinal plant and/or herb and tips for how to incorporate it into our lives
- My periodical entitled, 'Tread Lightly,' focused on environmental science and sustainability issues
I offer a limited number of new subscription and one-time purchase slots each cycle. There are two box tiers to choose from, The Trillium Forest Discovery Box ($75 plus shipping) and the TWO-IN-ONE Trillium Forest Discovery Box ($135 plus shipping)!
