Three-part series begins this weekend
Learn to develop a naturalist’s eye for observing flora and fauna when Adkins Arboretum offers Exploring Adkins Habitats, a three-part series designed to help participants develop the practice of sitting quietly alone in natural habitats, observing and documenting their experiences, and sharing those observations with others. The first program is Sat., Oct 19 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Subsequent sessions are Sat., Nov. 16 and Sat., Dec. 21.
Using Adkins Tent Symposium speaker David Haskell’s book The Forest Unseen as a guide, this workshop led by Maryland Master Naturalists will encourage participants to hone their observation skills and to express their experiences for mutual enjoyment and enrichment with the group and with readers of the Arboretum blog. They will be invited to help keep the Arboretum community abreast of trends in nature, sightings of flora or fauna that might be surprising, and even tracking phenomena of interest.
This program is free for members and free with admission for non-members. Advance registration is requested at adkinsarboretum.org or by calling 410.634.2847, ext. 0.
