2015 FOSM Events


Please note that NOT ALL Friends of Serpent Mound Events
ARE HELD at Serpent Mound Park.

In 2009, FOSM agreed to keep Reptiles Day and Archaeology Day going for the patrons and the Ohio Historical Society/Connection, when the Arc of Appalachia took over management of Serpent Mound. The current Park staff are wanting to take on those two events, and we wish them luck. We will share those dates, once we know them!

FOSM is happy to announce a new event! We will be Co-Sponsoring an event with the Alternate Universe:
Serpent Mound Spring Seed Blessing Festival.

Saturday, March 21 and Sunday, March 22, 2015
Serpent Mound Spring Seed Blessing Festival

This festival will connect with sacred sites around the World at 1:11 to bless seeds and water. The Serpent Mound Pipe with Tobacco was presented to Chief Blue Star Eagle and he accepted. We are honored that he and his wife Walks With New Beginnings Woman, And Chief Golden Light Eagle will be our Ceremonial leaders. Along with many others who will share their knowledge.
