NOTE: Registration for this program is FULL, but you can still add your name to the waitlist.

Join Phil Brown and Ignacio Oreamuno for a series of winter wanderings in tucked-away places close to the Harris Center. Each exploration will focus on a different natural history theme related to the conditions that present themselves that day – whether following animal trails through a boulder field, watching winter songbirds around the warmth of a bonfire, seeking out the flowing water of a winter thaw, or simply admiring the beauty and science of the winter woods. Through “micro-exploring” – the practice of focusing attention and intention on a smaller geographic area – and with the help of a little caffeine, your eyes will open to new experiences right in front of you. The course fee includes free Troubardour coffee with each session, and a lesson in making coffee the Costa Rican way.

This group meets Sundays, January 8 & 22, February 5 & 19, and March 12, from 9 to 11 a.m. at field sites throughout the SuperSanctuary.

Cost: $80 for Harris Center supporters / $100 for all others. (Single-day drop-in rates are $20/session.)

Instructors: Phil Brown is the Harris Center’s first-ever Bird Conservation Director. Ignacio Oreamuno is an adventure travel guide who has been taking people on journeys in Costa Rica for many years. His contagious passion for life and nature is something he loves to share on his trips. He is also a Hancock resident and mixologist, and the CEO of Troubardor Coffee, a bird-friendly Costan Rican coffee company.
