Listening in Nature Week

MAY 3 to 7  | around campus, with offerings online

At the heart of A new Earth conversation, the Listening in Nature program embodies our understanding that practices of slowing down, listening, becoming observant and available, and awakening to the magic of living ecosystems are vitally important as we navigate the realities of a warming world. We hope that in this time of uncertainty, experiences in nature will help you to ground yourself as you connect with your own resilience and strength. Please be sure to pre-register for these events here so that we can ensure COVID safety.
