I will offer two presentations at this spring's Outdoor Adventure Expo.  I hope you can join me. Link to the Expo website here.

Saturday,  April 23, 9:15a.m.
U of M – Hanson Hall, Room 109
When we venture into the wilderness, the phases of the moon dominate the hours between evening and morning twilight. Today, most of us live in communities that are brightly lit 24 hours a day.  We may not even notice the changing face of our nearest celestial neighbor as we go about our evening or nighttime activities.  Away from the artificial lights, we reconnect with the natural rhythms that our ancestors lived by. Come learn about the phases of the moon, and how they affect our time in the wilderness, including tips for stargazers, campers, and outdoors people of all stripes.

Bird Language: Understanding the Universal Language of Nature
Saturday, April 23, 1:00p.m.
U of M – Hanson Hall, Room 107
Birds talk to each other, we can learn to understand it, and it's fun. Birds are the alarm system of the forest, broadcasting the whereabouts of hawks, owls, foxes and more through their calls and postures. Learning bird language allows us to see more wildlife and feel more connected to the natural world. This presentation will give you the fundamental tools for interpreting bird language to enhance your own birding and nature experiences, plus information about local bird language programs and gatherings.
