A Bird Sit with Nature Journaling

Thursday, March 14, 2024 - 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM

This event has passed. Check out the Event Calendar for upcoming events.

A Bird Sit is an alternative approach to birding.  Instead of extended walking and standing, it involves finding a comfortable spot in nature to sit, slow down, be in the moment, and notice details and behavior patterns. 

A Bird Sit is not list-driven; it is not always trying to get the next bird.  It is a way of expanding your awareness of and connection to birds (and all of nature!)  And recording your Bird Sit experiences in a journal using words, numbers, and/or pictures can be very rewarding!

If you would like to mindfully connect with birds and all of nature, join us at the picnic tables near the bathrooms.  (Rain cancels and moves it to the 3rd Thursday.)  What to bring:  a cushion or a comfortable chair, a beverage/snack, binoculars, a journal, and something to write/draw with.

This event is limited to 10 people.  To reserve a spot, contact Teri Carnesciali at teri.carnesciali@sfvaudubon.org.

Sit will be cancelled in the event of rain. If you’re unsure whether a sit is taking place, please contact Teri to confirm.
