ECOcentric Lecture Series: Exploring the World of Birds

ECOcentric Lecture Series | Get out of your head and into nature!

Spreading ecological awareness, fostering environmental literacy, and inspiring activation.

Ecocentric is defined as having a serious concern for environmental issues. It is a mindset that values the entire environment and all life within rather than only what is useful to humans. In other words, it is a deliberate shift toward the balance that can be achieved when we make nature our center rather than ourselves.

The human experience is heightened when we nurture our fundamental relationship with the earth. As we navigate a rapidly changing world, fighting ecological unconsciousness will be paramount to our success and sustainability as a species. Join us in this series as we learn more
about the natural world and explore the actions we can all take at home to seek harmony with nature.

Through a variety of educational lectures and immersive field experiences with WCT staff and professionals, adults will gain a holistic foundation in four major conservation topics: birds and wildlife, regenerative farming, watersheds, and habitat stewardship. Students will gain a sense of ecological awareness and feel empowered to enact change in their own lives.


ECOcentric Lecture Series: Exploring the World of Birds

We need birds for the joy they bring to our lives as well as the life they bring to our world. They play critical roles in our ecosystem from controlling insect pests to indicating habitat quality. In this dynamic lecture, Education Programs Manager Blake Goll will lead us on an exploration of the world of birds from their prehistoric origins to modern day technological advances in our understanding of bird conservation. We’ll also learn about bird migration, nesting, and — one of Blake’s favorite topics — bird song!
