SESSION DESCRIPTONS

FOREST BATHING

Forest therapy (or shinrin-yoku) broadly means taking in, in all of one's senses, the forest atmosphere. Not simply a walk in the woods, it is the conscious and contemplative practice of being immersed in the sights, sounds, and smells of the forest.

OUTDOORS PHOTOGRAPHY

Start Getting Composed: Tell the story. Elevate yourself from simply “taking pretty pictures” to learning the secrets

of designing artwork that engages, tells a story, and moves your audience. Did you know you can literally control which parts of your image the audience will see first, second, and last? You can control the mood, energy, and even how long someone gazes upon your work. Learn how to strategically use elements of composition and light to take your artistry to the next level. Class will be part classroom/part field with guidance. Gear: Any camera is welcome. Even your cell phone. Level: Beginner to intermediate

BACKPACKING 101

Despite what the glossy magazine pictures will show you, it isn’t required that you spend two months of your annual salary for backpacking gear.  This class will help prepare you for a comfortable and enjoyable overnight hike into the wilderness.  Together, we will talk about the ten essentials, safety considerations, Leave No Trace principles, as well as gear and equipment selection.

DUTCH OVEN COOKING

Learn the basics of Dutch oven cooking and produce mouth-watering cobblers, rolls and main dishes in a camp-like setting. Students will learn how to use these traditional camp cooking utensils as well receive many great recipes to try yourself.

BACKPACKING 102 *add $20.00 for this class due to overnight stay.

In the previous class you learned what is necessary to have a tranquil hike into the wilderness.  Now, we are going to practice skills that will bring you confidence of the how is and why’s.  This session will be in the field and include an overnight backpacking trip to one of the backcountry areas of the Nordic Center.  You will be required to bring your own gear and a detailed list of gear needed is available on the registration website.   

ARIZONA WILDLIFE: OBSERVATION AND TRACKING

Learn how to identify wildlife sign such as tracks and scat, as well as which foods and habitats are important to Arizona wildlife. Participants will be instructed on how to interpret or ‘read’ wildlife tracks and sign and learn the fundamentals of observing wild animals, including tips on getting closer to wildlife and use of camouflage techniques.
