Backyard Birding is a fulfilling hobby with benefits that go beyond backyard entertainment.
Discover the wonder of birds in your own backyard! Participants will learn about common birds found in our local area, general bird behavior, and how to listen, watch, and discover the beautiful birds hidden all around us! Each registered participant will go home with their own pair of binoculars.
Nature journaling is the practice of drawing or writing in response to observations of nature. This practice results in the creation of your own unique nature journal. It helps to notice the details in nature, and improves recognition of different species, and understanding of where and how they live.
Participants will work together in a hands-on activity to build their own journal. We will provide all the arts/crafts supplies to make this a fun and personal activity. At the end of the activity, we will take some time to do some reflective nature writing in our journals with some prompts to help students find their “voice”.
