The Art of Paying Attention Workshop II -
Together with Beth Surdut, award-winning artist, writer, creator of Listening to Raven and The Art of Paying Attention NPR radio series, the USA-NPN and Pima County Natural Resources and Parks and Recreation are offering a second opportunity to learn the art of paying attention and telling a nature story. Observing nature starts with curiosity about what's around you. This workshop will explore and hone your observation skills through writing, drawing and storytelling. Plan to come share your backyard critter and habitat stories —off the cuff is just fine! We will facilitate the telling of your wildlife tales. Join us at Agua Caliente Park on Saturday March 26 from 10 am until noon. Pre-registration suggested via Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation's website.
