Learning to Listen: Indigenous Birds and Plants

Come join Lori Snyder and RedSara Ross to learn about Indigenous plants and their importance for our ‘winged’ friends.

At this time of great unease the earth needs each one of us to be able to see and hear clearly. What wisdom do indigenous birds and plants have to share with those who will listen? How can we tune in? Join us to witness and hear for yourself in this virtual gathering.
