This is part of a longer multi-day retreat in the Spring Mountains. You are welcome to come for one event or stay on the mountain for multiple days. If you decide to stay overnight, you are responsible for securing your own camping site and bringing your own gear, food, and water. Activities are scheduled for the mornings and afternoons, with downtime in between to explore on your own or with other retreatants. Reach out to the retreat leader, Morrigan DeVito, with any questions at morrigan.devito@redrockaudubon.com. She will be in touch with you no later than July 17 to confirm whether or not you are staying overnight. If you are staying, she will provide you with more details on how to prepare and connect you with other overnight participants. She will be staying at a campsite on the mountain.

Time: 12:00-2:30 Nature Journalling at Lee Meadows: Sketching Birds

How can nature journaling help us become better birders? In this session, we will learn how to sketch birds in the field by first observing their size, structure, and plumage. Then, you will learn some drawing tips for capturing the details you notice, as well as how you can add field notes, questions, and personal reflections to your nature journal entry to make it unique. No previous drawing experience is required for this class! 

It is recommended that you bring your own supplies, but paper, clipboards, pens, and colored pencils will be provided. If you’d like to sit during the workshop, bring your own camp chair. Sturdy boots, sun protection, and at least 2 liters of water are recommended, along with any additional hiking gear and snacks you may need.
