Naturalist Skills Community Nights
Making a quickie bow
Second Monday of every month, September to May
Naturalist Skills Community Nights are a chance for folks at Cascadia Wild to get together and learn about an aspect of nature or community, such as tracking, fire by friction, bird language, wild edibles, or story telling. Instructors are various members of the community who wish to share their personal expertise or experience. These gatherings will give everyone an opportunity to meet folks, learn, and have a lot of fun.
These events are offered to the community free of charge.
Everyone is welcome. No registration necessary. We're thrilled to put this on and share skills amongst our community.
Where: Cascadia Wild, 5431 NE 20th Ave. Located on the corner of 20th and Killingsworth, inside Redeemer Lutheran Church.
