Listening in Nature Day

Wednesday, October 16th, all day | Campus-wide

Join us for a day of Listening in Nature, a program of A new Earth conversation (NEC). On Wednesday, October 16th we invite the campus community to slow down, listen, observe and awaken to the magic of living ecosystems. Throughout the day there will be opportunities for exploring the natural world, from walking through the Hadwen Arboretum to foraging for fungi on campus.
