Learning the Story of Nature: Skill Building Workshops

“I am trying to teach you that this alphabet of “natural objects” (soils and rivers, birds and beasts) spells out a story. Once you learn how to read the land, I have no fear of what you will do to it, or with it, and I know many pleasant things it will do to you.”

-Aldo Leopold

Understanding and Interpretation of Bird Language

and Fire-Making.

A half-day introduction overview of all these is a workshop called

“Understanding the Language of Nature.”
