Mindfulness and Birding - Kristy Taylor MICHIGAN STATE BIRD OBSERVATORY
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.
