Join Delaware Humanities and Bombay Hook Wildlife Refuge for an afternoon of learning about the park, the birds, and nature journaling.  Participants will travel around the park with stops for bird watching and writing.  Journaling will be guided by Lisa Dill, Professor of English specializing in Environmental Humanities at the University of Delaware and University of Iowa.

Participants should bring a pen, notebook, clipboard/hard writing surface, binoculars, and dress appropriately for the weather.  We will meet at the Visitor’s Center.

Registration required.  Spaces are extremely limited.  Register online or by contacting Delaware Humanities.

Program Description

Many of us think the word "environment" exists in strictly scientific terms, from climate science to land management to agriculture to food. However, all of these issues occupy a space between science and the humanities. All of them are debated and discussed by writers, historians, philosophers, and political figures, in addition to chemists, biologists, and physicists. All of them intersect with the other crucial issues of American life: health, culture, religion, economics. The Environmental Humanities open these discussions for all of us, providing a framework for these important conversations. Delaware Humanities is excited to begin facilitating Environmental Humanities programs in our communities. Check this space for upcoming events.
