In Conversation With The Urban Field Naturalist Project

FRIDAY 19 AUG 2022

As our worlds are getting smaller, we make them bigger by paying attention to the details. - The Urban Naturalist Project

Combining science with art, philosophy, and storytelling, the book aims to cultivate a sense of wonder and appreciation for our remarkable natural world.

Let the team from the Urban Field Naturalist Project amaze you with weird and wonderful facts about cockatoos, magpies, spiders, possums and other animals just outside your doorstep. Then get inspired to cultivate a deeper connection with tips for observing, sketching, photographing and making field notes - or simply sitting still to observe and listen.
