Engaging Nature Through All the Senses

Jul 28, 2018

Wind makes aspen leaves and conifer needles whisper, but they do so in different voices. In flight, some birds’ wings whistle, some trill, some buzz, and some are silent. Subalpine fir and balsam poplar both enrich the air after a summer rain. Wood nymph and pipsissewa contend for the most beautiful fragrance of all our wildflowers. A fresh gumweed defines what sticky is, and an old mushroom defines what slimy is. Being truly outdoors involves more than what the eyes can see. Engaging the Senses will explore how using all our senses can enrich our time engaging nature.
