W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary
There is beauty and wonder all around us. Learning how to keep a nature journal of your observations can help deepen your connection to art, science, and place.
Join our Zoom series where each class will begin with a presentation that introduces the ecology of native plants and landscapes given by Kellogg Biological Station scientist. Participants will spend the remainder of each class learning to document their observations of nature using techniques in colored pencil from Artist Olivia Mendoza.
This course aims to give an introduction to ecology at several spatial scales, including landscapes, communities, and species.

02/25/2021: Landscape and ecosystem ecology
