FULL Music and the Wild
Birds, crickets, wind, rain, leaves...the sounds of these are part of the music of nature, the music of the wild: the plants, animals, air, and more that weave their sounds into an awesome musical background that accompanies us through life. Join in the fun while we explore the sounds of nature by hiking in the Artistree fields and woods, listening to music, watching videos, and making nature-themed instruments that we use to make wild music together.
