*Join Bird Diva Bridget Butler for a Slow Birding Outing. This mindful approach to birding will connect you with birds, the land, and yourself. Bridget will lead you on an outcome-free outing that will focus on getting to know birds beyond their identification.

We'll start by getting to know who's on the landscape that particular day and practice sharing our observations as a group in a way that uplifts each participant, no matter their level of knowledge or experience birding. Next, we'll settle into a sit spot session with prompts that Bridget will offer the group to use. We'll wrap up by coming back together and sharing our observations, feelings, and wonderings with the whole group.

Participants should dress for the weather and at least 30 minutes of sitting in place. Consider bringing a portable chair, journal, hot beverage or water, binoculars, and whatever will make you most comfortable when sitting. Bridget will have binoculars and portable chairs for participants to borrow, as well as a small cart to carry our gear.

Bridget strives to make birding accessible to all. If you have any accessibility needs, please let us know, and we'll make every effort to accommodate you. Your participation is important to us, and we want to ensure that everyone can enjoy this outing.
