2018 Workshop Schedule

I usually teach 3 times a year, 2 weekends, Spring and Fall, at the Pt. Reyes National Seashore, and a 5 day class at the Sierra Nevada Field Campus in mid-late July, in the Sierra Buttes region. Please contact me  if you want to be on a mailing list for workshop announcements and updates. My Pt. Reyes workshops are listed first. Please scroll all the way down the page to find more information about the workshops.

Pt. Reyes - Spring 2018 
May 11-13
Clem Miller Environmental Education Center (Limantour)

Sign ups are now open here

The class runs from 6 pm Friday evening to early Sunday afternoon. This spring we'll be at the Clem Miller Center, which is just down the road from the Pt. Reyes Hostel, and a short drive to Limantour Beach with great views of the Estero, and surrounding hills. This location has bunkhouses and a main building with a big kitchen, and ample space for dining and lectures. We traditionally hold a pot luck on Saturday night. Plenty of outside painting, demos, and lectures.
