Celebrate the natural world at the Klamath County Library

To Earth, with Love: Thursday, February 22nd 5pm
I Want to Be a Bird When I Grow Up: Monday, February 26th 3:30pm
Downtown Klamath County Library

We’re celebrating nature (and birds in particular) at the downtown Klamath County Library in February! Join us for “To Earth, with Love” on Thursday, February 22nd at 5 pm and “I Want to Be a Bird When I Grow Up” on Monday, February 26th at 3:30 pm.

These events are part of a series of nature-themed films, workshops and other activities for all ages brought to you by Teresa “Bird” Wicks from the Great Outdoor Alliance each month through July 2018.

We’re gathering on Thursday, February 22nd at 5 pm to share poems and art celebrating the beauty of nature. Feel free to bring a piece to share! (Stuck for ideas? The downtown Klamath County Library has lots of nature poetry in its collection. Ask your friendly neighborhood librarian for some advice!) We’ll also compose “love letters” declaring our fondness for all things “great outdoors.”

On Monday, February 26th at 3:30 pm, we’re talking all about birds! What’s it like being a bird? How are birds like humans? Can you really become a bird when you grow up? (Sort of.) This event is geared a bit more toward younger nature fans.

Wicks spent her childhood roaming the forests of southern Oregon while her father climbed trees to collect cones. An early obsession with birds led to hours of hiking, journaling, and artistic expression. As a scientist, educator, and artist, Wicks derives great joy from introducing kids, adults, and families to birds, science, and the many ways nature is intertwined in our daily lives.
