During this weekend-long program, you will be immersed in a community of nature connection mentors and learners. Through exercises, instruction, games and lots of time sitting in the woods, the community setting amplifies each individual’s learning journey. Together as a group we will begin to uncover unique patterns of the local birds and animals, and what they are telling us through their behavior and language. There are a limited number of spots available for this special program. Please join us!
Bird Language Leaders program and have been running bird language programs across the state for the past two years. Lead facilitator Jonathan Poppele has trained with Jon Young since 1998 and is the Minnesota coordinator for Bird Language Leaders. The weekend will include instruction, exercises, storytelling, games, and lots of time sitting quietly in the woods observing and connecting with nature.
We encourage carpooling and can help to coordinate rides from the Twin Cities, including MSP Airport. Please contact us if you would like to share a ride.
Our program will be hosted in Schwyzer Lodge, the Center's beautiful, historic lakeside house. Schwyzer Lodge offers bunk beds. There are no private bedrooms. We expect to fill all of the upper and lower bunks during the weekend. Please contact us if you need lower bunk accommodations. You can rent linens for $10, or bring your own sleeping bag. Take a peek at Schwyzer Lodge here.
We will eat all of our meals in the Audubon Center's main dining hall. Meals begin with dinner on Friday and end with lunch on Sunday.
Schwyzer Lodge also has a full kitchen which you are free to use during the weekend.
