Music and Nature: Facilitating a Nature Jam
This session aims to provide ideas to the audience about ways they can utilize the music as an anchoring practice to root young people in the sights, sounds, and wonder of nature. We will explore the use of invasive plant species to create instruments and music with children. The talk will culminate in a nature jam where participants can use their instruments in a jam or create music inspired by nature.

NOTE: Lunch Session times and durations may change. Please check back before conference day to confirm.
