Birding Like Buddha (Mindful Naturalists)

Saturday, Mar 13, 2021

10:00am – 11:30am

In February, join us in ‘birding like Buddha.’ For this program, we will prioritize the experiences we have watching individual birds and our connection to them instead of trying to identify species or maximize the number of birds we encounter. We will sit often and watch quietly as the waterfowl on our ponds live out their unique and fascinating lives. What new things can we learn about birds from watching them in this way? No birding experience required!

Mindful Naturalists is a free program series created to inspire mindful observation and nature appreciation. Each month we will explore a different topic and experiment with a different practice for mindfully experiencing the natural world while enjoying hot tea and a peaceful afternoon at our beautiful field station.
