The robin, junco and other songbirds know everything important about their environment. By tuning into their vocalizations and behaviors we can acquire much of this wisdom for our own pleasure and benefit. This class unites indigenous knowledge, the latest scientific research, and the presenter’s own field experience to lead us toward a deeper connection with the natural world.
Joe Longshore is a physical therapist assistant and lifelong amateur naturalist. For twenty years, he has taught wilderness survival, nature awareness and bird language locally and in classes as far away as California. He was first introduced to bird language over 25 years ago while studying with world renowned naturalist Tom Brown Jr.
Joe is particularly indebted to the wisdom and work of naturalist Jon Young whose lessons deeply inform the program Joe will present.
