Join Kay Westhues for an evening “Listening to Our Watershed Soundscape” workshop to be held Oct 17, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., at Salamonie Lake. The program begins with DNR’s interpretive naturalist Cassie Kennedy with Sound Bites at 6:30 p.m. where participants will hear and learn about nature’s sounds.

The workshop continues at 7:30 p.m. with an evening stroll and soundwalk at Salamonie Lake’s Lost Bridge West SRA. Participants will listen and record the park’s night sounds using provided digital recording equipment. The recorded sounds will be added to the World Listening Day sound-scape map that will be available online.
