Deep Birding through the Seasons: Spring Approaches with Dan van den Broek and Candace Larson *FULL*

Next spring, take your relationship with the natural world to the next level! 

Nature immersion is an integral part of our well-being and a place to step away from our busy lives and modern society, building a sense of wonder and respect for a world much bigger than ourselves. Join Dan and Candace as we use a slower approach to connecting with nature with a focus on understanding birds. From March through July, we’ll dive deep into our senses, focusing on awareness and intention, careful observation, inspired field journaling and basic illustration and mindfulness.  

We’ll begin each 3-week module with an evening class to orient ourselves to the rhythm of the season, followed by weekly field days in a variety of local natural areas.  Each field excursion will include both group activities and solo sit spots, exercises in birding without binoculars, deep listening and an opportunity to weave creativity into our birding practice.  We’ll build our skills as field birders while we build our connection to the natural systems that surround us.

Module 1, March 2024: Spring Approaches *FULL*

This module focuses on the changing season, how birds are using the landscape, and an introduction to bird language.
