Birding and Drawing to Pathways of Observation


Join Stacey Vigallon, LA Audubon’s Director of Environmental Education, for a day at the garden exploring the connections between drawing and birding and learning how both activities can enhance your observation skills. Ms. Vigallon will demystify the drawing process and reframe it as just another tool for engaging with the world around us. You’ll also examine how bird-watching can be a great entry-point to understanding ecology and conservation. With the garden as your classroom, you will have ample opportunity to stretch your legs and skills through a series of outdoor drawing activities. All skill levels (of drawing and bird identification) are welcome, and we encourage participants to bring their curiosity and a willingness to try something new. Drawing supplies and binoculars will be provided, but participants are welcome to bring their own as well.

Saturday, February 10, 10 am – 3 pm
