The World of Birds
July 12th, 2018

What are birds really? Discuss birds classification, behavior, their ecology, and importance. Learn how to sketch and describe birds in a Nature journal (and where to share our observations).

Get outside, and practice how to spot (including how to master binoculars and scope), and how to identify our local birds by sound, shape, flight, behavior and more…

Closer to Nature is a collaboration between Earthwise Aware and the Center for Arts at the Armory. The program is designed for youth (12+) to explore and enjoy the natural world around the Armory through storytelling, nature & naturalist walks, sketching & journaling, art, and science.

Closer to Nature cultivates a deep understanding that Nature conservation starts right where we live, in our own backyards, city parks, and forests. The program aims at inspiring its participants to become mentors in their communities by taking part in awareness programs and sharing their knowledge with communities, schools, friends and family members.
