Welcome to Birds Connect Seattle’s Fall 2023 member newsletter, EarthCare Northwest. In this issue, we look to birds as a source of inspiration for art, aviation, literature, and learning.
The skies have always captured the human imagination, inspiring dreams of flight and exploration. But long before humans took to the skies, birds had already mastered the art and science of flight.
This summer, Nature Camp offered four week-long sessions devoted to visual art expression for our campers. With guidance from one of our members and our Camp Naturalists, the campers experienced a week filled with creativity in various art media.
Autumn is always a great time to cozy up with a book. Select your next great read using these book reviews by member Grace Rajendran, all of which share the common inspiration—birds.
At the heart of our mission at Birds Connect Seattle is a commitment to bridging the gap between bird appreciation and conservation. Our outreach staff and volunteers are out in the community sparking curiosity and inspiration, and opening doors to fresh perspectives and diverse viewpoints.
Volunteers are needed for the fall 2023 season of the Seattle Bird Collision Monitoring Project. Joining has never been easier; you can even participate from home! With your help, we can understand and prevent bird-window collisions, one of the worst causes of human-related bird death in Seattle.
Birds Connect Seattle is proud to introduce a new visual identity for our organization, produced by nationally recognized designer and illustrator Gabriel López.
