Community Workshops

DSC02221People, Nature and Place:  Come join Brian and other community adults in learning more about the unique nature of our backyard.  During an evening orientation we will determine three field trips for us to take over the course of subsequent weekends.  All trips will be up to four hours and DSC02219will be geared toward participants’ interests and abilities. We will travel up to 2-3 miles on foot over moderate terrain.  Activities will include honing observation techniques, getting to know the tools and approaches of a field naturalist and how to discover a heightened “sense of place”.  Let’s get outside!

Look for upcoming sessions in 2011!
