This year’s slate of 40 field seminars spans many topics: basketry, oil painting, mammals, moonlight photography, volcanism, mining history, Basque sheepherders, kayaking, and more.

Three workshops are back by popular demand: South Shore Kayak, Arborglyphs & Aspen Natural History, and Sierra Nevada Bighorn Sheep.

This year you’ll notice that many of the one-day field seminars led by Nora Livingston, Lead Naturalist Guide, are offered on consecutive days so you can make the most of your time in the Mono Basin and learn all about birds, geology, natural history, and more in one trip.
