‘The Lost Words’ at Audubon
Stately, sneaky, fierce, and fluid: The heron and the weasel both embody these traits and more.
Written by Robert Macfarlane and beautifully illustrated by Jackie Morris, The Lost Words is the multiple award-winning book that gives guidance in retrieving 20 nature-related words that disappeared from the Oxford Junior English Dictionary in 2007.
From 11 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Feb. 15, Audubon Community Nature Center will explore “The Lost Words: Heron and Weasel.” You are invited to learn more about these animals, read their spells, play with words, and give them back the power of their names.
The Lost Words reminds us to stop, stare and marvel at the wonders of the natural world while reconnecting, as Morris described, with “common words [and species] that are falling from common usage.”
Continuing on the third Saturday of the month through 2020, this program series uses poetry, music, and art to strengthen participants’ emotional connection to nature.
Space is limited. The cost is $8, or $6 for members and children ages 9-15.
Paid reservations are required by Thursday, Feb. 13. They can be made by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or going to AudubonCNC.org/Programs and clicking through “Current Schedule.”
To learn more about Audubon and its many programs, call (716) 569-2345, visit AudubonCNC.org, or find Audubon Community Nature Center on Facebook.
