Wild & Connected Series: Bird Language

Our Wild & Connected Series in the Essex, NY area continues with three events on the topic of bird language—the communication network of the forest. A presentation by Connor Stedman on Friday, May 3 at the Whallonsburgh Grange (starting at 7:00 pm) will introduce the core patterns of bird language through images, sound, and storytelling. Long understood by trackers from around the world, bird language offers a unique window into ecology, animal behavior, and the relationship between people and nature.

On the following Saturday, May 4 and Sunday, May 5, Connor will lead Bird Language field workshops. These full-day outings offer an experiential introduction to observing and interpreting bird language in the field. There is a $45 fee, and preregistration is required. Contact Elizabeth Lee at for registration information.

Presenter Connor Stedman is a field naturalist, wilderness educator, and ecological designer. He has been mentoring students of all ages in nature awareness since 2004, and leads courses in natural history, bird language, wilderness skills, and agroforestry throughout the Northeast. Connor is currently completing an M.S. in Ecological Planning at the University of Vermont.

These programs are being jointly offered by Northeast Wilderness Trust and Elizabeth Lee, Outdoor Guide. See our Events page or Facebook event page for more details.
