For adults. Something is always unfolding in nature just outside your backdoor and at the local park. Stories are “being told” all of the time. If you know what to look for, listen for, etc. you will be able to crack the secret code of animal language and behavior and tap into these rich stories unfolding around you. Join us to learn about clues from birds, squirrels, deer, etc. that paint the bigger picture of what is going on. Multiple examples of what to look and listen for will be shared. Tips for warming up and fine tuning your senses will be practiced to help you become better at tracking nature. Additionally, investigating scat and tracks tells of a story that has already transpired and can be observed as well. After covering some of the “how to” skills of this endeavor, we will take a short walk to put into practice what we have learned, and discover what is unfolding around us. Resources will be suggested for further exploration of your neighbors’ stories to continue this unique study and understanding of nature on your own.
