Workshop Overview

Did you ever want to be able to identify the animals, plants and fungi around you? You don’t need a biology degree! Learn how anyone can explore nature in more depth regardless of educational background. The first day will be spent in the studio exploring concepts, skills, and tools for identification. Day two will be in the field practicing using these for identifying living beings as we encounter them to gain confidence through real-world experience.
