Taught by Lisa Nett
Lisa hails from the tree filled state of Wisconsin. She studied forestry at UW-Madison, and the art of firewood stacking on the family dairy farm. She rolls through the city streets on a trusty Schwinn while sneaking peeks at the passing trees. Check out Lisa's tree-focused Tumblr, The Tree Seen, or follow her on Twitter, @lisa_nett.
"In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks." - John Muir
Join us for a light-hearted look at trees! We will seek to identify a few trees and search for the poems hidden in the furrows of bark and in the slenderest of branches.
This class leans heavily toward the whimsical and will certainly get those creative juices flowing with some poetry generating exercises. Featuring fresh vocabulary to excite and previously unimagined ways of describing bark. Earth Month + Poetry Month = Poet-trees!
We'll meet in Prospect Park, and exact directions will be sent the day before the walk.
