Speaker: Kate Richter

Program: Mindful Birdwatching

Birds are all around us – in our yards, on telephone wires, in trees, and even in parking lots. But how often do we really pay attention to them? And how can learning about birds help us become more aware of the world around us? In this presentation, Kate Righter will share her experiences with birdwatching and nature journaling as a starting point for learning how to move more mindfully through our days – aware and awake to the present moment.

Kate Righter is a nature journaler, artist, writer, and educator living in Kailua, near where she grew up. Her work is rooted in the belief that creativity and curiosity can help people of all ages deepen the connection between themselves and the natural world. Kate is a volunteer on the Educator Advisory Committee with the international Wild Wonder organization. She has taught classes in schools and with a variety of nonprofits, including Mānoa Heritage Center, Hawai’i Audubon Society, and Bishop Museum. Learn more on her website: https://katerighter.com/
