Birds and Coffee - Birding and Mindfulness
From Lisa Lucia Duke
Grab your morning beverage and join us to learn more about 5 bird species! Each session we’ll highlight birds that you can find in our SW Michigan backyards, woods and waters. Your hosts are educators: Lisa Duke and Misty Klotz from Kellogg Biological Station and Kellogg Bird Sanctuary. Zoom in and participate by sharing your recent bird sightings and asking questions!
Topic: Birding and Mindfulness
This month for birds and coffee chat we will be joined by Kristy Taylor for a focus on Birding and Mindfulness, learn how to combine birding and nature discovery with a sense of place and the practice of mindfulness. Kristy will share ways to help you look at birding differently, and use your time outdoors to create a sense of peace, focus and enjoyment. We will pay attention to bird behaviors, the environment, sounds and our influence on the natural spaces around us.
