Saturday, March 21, 3:30-5PM. Norwalk Library Gardening Lecture Series: Spring is Here! Can You Hear It?The wind or rain… or the sleigh-bell sounds of spring peepers, the gentle call of a bluebird in summer, or a katydid rasping in the fall–we can become so accustomed to the background noises of our life that we tune these sounds of our natural world out. Come to this talk to find out more about the emerging field of soundscape ecology, and to learn some simple steps you can take to welcome nature’s chorus back to your neighborhood.
