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.

7:30am - 9:30am Slow Birding at Lee Canyon

Parking coordinates will be emailed to participants.

Explore the sights and sounds of the Spring Mountains while birding at Lee Meadows. “Slow birding” is the practice of birding without the intention of keeping a list or trying to see as many species as possible. Instead, we will move slowly and focus on our sensory experience while observing the birds that show up in the moment. You will also learn a few mindfulness exercises that can help you stay centered and present in nature and throughout your life. Sturdy boots, sun protection, and at least 2 liters of water are recommended, along with any additional hiking gear and snacks you may need.
