Poetry and Science in the Outdoors In-Person

This workshop will focus on connecting with nature through the lens of science and poetry. Participants will practice observation skills, explore the local environment, and write poems based on what they notice. All ages and levels of experience with poetry, science, and writing are welcome!

The workshop will take place outside the Library in the SmartGarden and by the Creek. Participants will meet in the SmartGarden. All necessary materials (pencils, pens, and paper) will be available for participants; you are also welcome to bring a journal and pen or pencil of your own.
