Join birder Chuck Stebelton the second Sunday of each month for a small-group, socially distanced bird walk on the grounds. Keeping to the perimeter of the garden, we’ll watch for seasonal migrants and resident bird species and seek out the best bird habitats to identify as many species as we can. Please dress for the weather and plan to walk in varied terrain. Bring your binoculars if you have them; no previous birding experience required.

Participants will spend three workshop sessions exploring recipes and poems from writers including Gwendolyn Brooks (her signature Frozen Fruit Salad), Lorine Niedecker (A Cooking Book), Thomas Meyer (Corn Close Kitchen), Ronald Johnson (American Table, Simple Fare), Jaime de Angulo (The Hangover Cookbook), and Robin Blaser (Dave’s Fabulous Recipes). We’ll sample Milwaukee Kitchen, a local made-for-YouTube cooking program featuring diverse gatherings of poets, writers, and food scholars. Our sessions will include generative prompts to dish up plenty of new writing, while encouraging recovery of regional recipes and domestic lore. On July 31, participants and their guests are invited to read writings inspired by the course, and food and beverages will be on hand in celebration of the occasion. This final event is free and open to all!
