CAPTURING NATURE IN FIELD NOTES
How do eminent field scientists and naturalists like E. O. Wilson and Kenn Kaufman record their work? What did George Schaller note when studying Serengeti lions? And how should you cultivate your own skills as a birder, citizen scientist, or adventurer? Dr. Michael Canfield, entomologist, Harvard lecturer, and author, will share stories from historical and contemporary field notes to reveal scientific knowledge, exhilarating expeditions, and important discoveries. He also provides practical advice on documenting adventures in the natural world. Copies of his book, Field Notes on Science and Nature, will be available for purchase and signing. Following the talk, Michael Canfield will lead the group into the field and provide a guided tutorial on taking field notes. You are encourged to bring your own journal. Pre- registration required.
