Join us for a songful meander through the Haile Farm Preserve. This will be both a guided nature walk and a peripatetic folk song concert led byBenedict Gagliardi, Armand Aromin and Flannery Brown. The trio will share their knowledge of local insects, birds, other wildlife and plants. At many moments they may drift into a song relevant to the flora and fauna the group encounters. All are encouraged to sing along!
Benedict (Biologist and Collections Manager at the RISD Nature Lab) has led a number of walks at Haile Farm and is particularly fond of insects and their ecology. Flannery is a budding forager and will cue us into the tasty spring ephemerals that the spring woods have to offer. If the conditions are right, Armand might even teach us a step or two from his percussive dance repertoire that can be used to tamp down the trails.
Attendees can expect to come home with new knowledge about our local ecosystems as well as a few earworms!
