World Listening Day is July 18th. Join us at the Paul H. Douglas Center for Environmental Education for two very special programs to celebrate the day. At 11:00 a.m., meet Dan Godston, co-founder of the Midwest Society for Acoustic Ecology’s World Listening Project, as he leads a 45-minute “Soundwalk” through Miller Woods. Learn tips on listening to the symphony of sounds of both nature and humans and consider how these sounds relate to wildlife conservation and our appreciation of northwest Indiana’s natural splendor.
If you’re looking for something more visual, join art instructor, Marcia Browne from 1:00 pm – 3:00 p.m. to create your own unique work of art in her “Landscapes of Miller Woods” program. Ms. Browne will use the works of artist Georgia O’Keefe to help inspire your artistic endeavor. Both this art program and the Soundwalk are free.
