According to a Chinese Proverb “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” Learning the Language of Nature is a series of courses for adults that breathe new life into the environment around us. It’s never too late to learn. Upcoming courses this spring include a focus on bird ecology and plant life. Discover a new understanding and appreciation for the living systems all around us.
Each course includes six evening classes and three Saturday morning field trips. No tests, papers, or projects are assigned. All that is required is interest and attendance. Enrollment is limited to 15 people. Registration is $245 or just $195 for Watershed members with a discount for enrolling in both sessions.
