365 Nature – Day 107
In 2016 I’m doing a 365 Nature project. Each day of the year I will post something here about nature. It may be any format, a photo, video, audio, sketch or entry from my nature journal. It could be a written piece. Each day I will connect to nature in some way and share it here by the end of that day. You can keep up-to-date by subscribing to the RSS feed or be notified by email. See all the 365 Nature posts.
This is the third year – not in a row – that I’ve attended the Environmental Writer’s Workshop at the Burke Museum at the University of Washington. I always enjoy these workshops because it’s a great chance to meet fellow writers and today I was fortunate to meet many other writers including several I know on Twitter. It’s a great chance to network.
It’s also probably the best place in the city for meetings and workshops although the schedule didn’t allow much time to explore the museum. At least if I have to be inside, having all that natural history around makes it a little more bearable.
The three writers who led sessions were Maria Mudd Ruth, author of Rare Bird, Michelle Nijuis, a science journalist and Knute Berger, an author and columnist. They were all excellent hosts and shared a wide range of knowledge and useful information.
