Mindful Birding

ECAS and the Deschutes Land Trust invite you to join us for a morning of (mostly) quiet shared enjoyment of our local birds. 

This is a free event, but limited to ten people. You are welcome to register for one or more of the three sessions. This RSVP is for the first sesssion:

  • September 30th near Sisters at Deschutes Land Trust’s Whychus Canyon Preserve.
Other sessions in the series:
  • October 7 near La Pine at Deschutes Land Trust’s Paulina Creek Preserve
  • October 14 near Bend at Tumalo State Park (participants will need to pay a state park admission fee to park for this event).
Starting at 9:30 am, for about ninety minutes, we will sit outside together mostly just listening and observing. For those wanting to share, there will be some opportunities to talk about the birds around us. 

This is not a formal meditation practice - as long as it is not too distracting or disturbing to nature around us, you are encouraged to move as you need to stay comfortable and there is no required method of enjoying our silence. We will ask people to refrain from talking during the fifteen to thirty minute quiet periods. This is a chance to pause together and, somewhat unobtrusively, be with and appreciate the birds around us.  

Designed to be an inclusive and accessible event, please let us know if you require any  accommodations. The sit area will be near several parking spaces for those with mobility needs.
