ENVS 195 Ways of Knowing: Nature and Perception

Writers and naturalists have long used writing and sketching to deepen their own and others' understanding of the natural world and create connection to place. And it all starts with the not-so-simple act of observation. Join us as we explore the journals and essays of historical and contemporary naturalists and writers and apply what we learn to our own reading, writing, and sketching in the field. Practice seeing like a writer, artist, and naturalist and learn tools for unlocking the mysteries that surround us both in the forests and in our own backyards. Enrollment Limit: 15.
