Bird Language Class & Farm Shop

September 6, 2014 : 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

$20 – $30

Activities and strategies to be shared:

Nature-based mindfulness techniques to reduce our impact on the land and sharpen our senses and perceptions
5 voices of the birds
Bird behaviors
Interpretation of voice and behavior into stories of the landscape and its inhabitants
Mapping bird activity in the local ecology
Using bird language in “the real world”
We’ll introduce a simple, easy to use vocabulary that will allow each participant to learn and apply the techniques immediately. No prior birding experience is required, this is not an ID or song ID workshop, but birders are very welcome and will love this old wisdom!

$20/person, $30/couples or pairs, kids free. Recommended for children 12ish and up, and only if they are interested in nature and birds and have some patience. Some parts of the morning are active, but the center of the workshop is a bird sit, lasting 40-60 minutes. It’s not a good fit for little, restless people. Big, restless people we can deal with.

Bring: Appropriate clothing- we’ll be outside the entire time. Rain Gear. Stool or blanket to sit on in the woods, if needed. Snacks and water bottle. Pencil/pen and journal for notes.
