Back by popular demand, join naturalist educators Hannah Hinchman and Bruce Thompson for three full days of unique integration of observation, personal reflection, and field interpretation..
To be fully present in the natural world, we must be alert and inquisitive—receptive to the small signs and subtle clues around us. A field journal is an ideal way to record moments of discovery, as well as a quiet way of simply being present outdoors. In this workshop, artist/writer Hannah Hinchman and naturalist/educator Bruce Thompson join in exploring the richness of our mountain habitats, opening windows to nature’s many secrets and learning to personalize these experiences through journal entries, both drawn and written.
The weekend will include 3 full days of instruction, daily outings, evening presentations, and 9 homemade meals made with local and organic ingredients at a rustic lodge in the heart of the North Cascades.
$515/person shared room
$299/local rate includes dinner/dessert all nights (limited space)
This workshop is limited to 15 participants. For more information or registration, please contact Kim at the North Cascades Basecamp at 509/996-2334 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
