Nature Adventures on Star Island

July 13 - July 20


Nature Adventures on Star Island

Program Leader: Ann Sigford

There are so many birds, wildflowers, and native plants on Star Island! Learn about and observe living things on land, in water, and in the air, honing your observational skills in the company of others. We’ll also experience “forest bathing” in the silence of the woods. You might select a living thing and take the time to get to know it well: an unfolding plant, a spider that you feed for the week, or a butterfly larva that you observe and sketch every day. Or you might decide to observe a bird family as they go about raising a family. Then we’ll share what we’ve learned.


Ann has had a long and joy-filled career as a naturalist, primarily in Minnesota, but also in Sweden, where she lived with her husband on his farm and was a nature and culture guide. They returned to Rochester, Minnesota in 2019 and Ann became a Master Naturalist in all three of Minnesota’s biomes. Ann and Folke attend We are enthusiastic members of Rochester’s First UU Church.
