NatureCon 2022 is a two-week virtual conference seeking to unite and inspire collaboration between Bellisseria and Mainland organizations under the shared goal of promoting exploration across the grid. This celebration of nature and connection will run from August 18th to the 31st. 

There will be many activities and events happening these two weeks. Pick up a collectible event booklet in the Info Pavilion close to the landing spot which will include a map and highlights about the event. As you walk around the regions, look for an art hunt with collectible paintings and a ladybug hunt with themed camp items.

Activities start today with a live DJ event from 12pm PT, and then at 4pm PT an opening speech from the organizers of the event, Yukiko Yeshto and Soull Starlight.

Along with numerous contributors, our very own Moles have donated their time and talent to create Bellisseria landmarks at this event, including a lighthouse and Mermaid grotto! In tomorrow’s upcoming Lab Gab, we will hear the story of how the Moles got involved.
