Bats and Barton Springs Poetry Workshop (Ages 11-14)
When: Saturday, January 18th, 2014 9:00am-12:00pm
What: This workshop is ideal for kids who want to enjoy nature–and even see a live bat or two! In this workshop collaboration with Bat Conservation International and Barton Springs, kids will first learn about bats and their place in Austin’s natural landscape. Bat experts from BCI will even bring rescued bats to show the kids, who will then learn about nature poetry and write their own. The workshop will then move to Barton Springs, where the kids will write more poetry based on Austin’s favorite swimming hole. Students’ poems will be included in a student-written travel guide of Austin, to be released in Spring 2014. REGISTER HERE!
