Music is everywhere in nature; you can find it in the song of a bird, the wind whistling through tree branches and through the crunching of leaves and twigs underfoot. Join us as we learn about the components of a song and how to “collect sounds” in our nature journals by sketching symbols that remind us of the things we hear. Compose your very own musical masterpiece after a walk through the Children’s Garden!
