This is the final youth (ages 5+) bird program of a series.
Created and led by Juno Chimera (he/they), Equity Nature Educator at Hoyt Arboretum Friends, serving through AmeriCorps and Confluence Environmental.
When we listen using our whole body, our engagement with our surroundings becomes multi-sensory. Not only do we attune to birds, we attune to everything, from the sounds of cars, to our stomach’s grumble. While awareness can sometimes spark overwhelm, focus offers a grounding practice of returning to ourselves and our present moment. In order to better orient ourselves in the natural world, we will be be creating Sound Maps together, using color and shape to symbolize the different sounds we hear. There will be an opportunity to share your map with the group, and learn more descriptive words for the experience of sound.
This workshop is offered on Zoom. Attendees who sign up will receive a link and login information before workshop.
