What happened here last night? Whose tracks are those? When did these plants change? Why are those birds flying that way? How do I move more quietly? These are some questions we embrace as we come to know our urban neighborhood outdoor environment. Participants will gain hands-on opportunities for learning the wonders of nature through quiet observation and active exploration. Naturalist subject areas to be addressed: survival necessities (shelter, fire, water, food); local wildlife/plant studies; environmental ethics and awareness through games/crafts. Participants will journal their nature immersion through writing, art, and storytelling performance.
