Slow Birding Field Session

  • Brewster Uplands Conservation Trust 51 W Farm Rd Cambridge, VT, 05464 United States (map)

REGISTRATION DETAILS COMING SOON! PLEASE SIGN UP FOR MY MONTHLY EMAILS TO STAY UP TO DATE ON THIS AND OTHER EVENTS.

Hosted by the Vermont Land Trust and the Cambridge Conservation Commission

Bird Diva Bridget Butler will share the practice of Slow Birding and how you can awaken your innate birding skills and reconnect with nature. She’ll share a variety of techniques that will help you look at birds, listen to them and interpret their behavior that will not only build your skills as a naturalist, but will provide you with a practice that will allow you to slow down and reconnect with the natural world.

This field session will include a mini-workshop on skill building to improve your observational skills followed by a group sit-spot session and debrief. We’ll capture our observations during the sit and then regroup to map our experiences and share stories of what we observed. We’ll wrap up by discussing how the sit-spot practice can be used at home and how to continue creating a deeper connection with birds and place.
