Inspired by Nature   Outdoor Discoveries 2014
Inspired by Nature summer class

How has nature inspired and shaped the way we communicate?
Guided by teachers and local experts, your child will embark on a four-day adventure to chase "songs of nature" through air, water, music, art, and history - learning how whales sing, bats screech, and ospreys squeak, and how these and other songs have become inventions, works of art and music, and scientific discoveries that help us communicate with each other and with our surroundings. For young adults age 9-12.
