Exquisite and fragile, yet strong enough to migrate thousands of miles, monarch butterflies have captured our imaginations with their beauty and complexity.  Elke and her husband Garth have gotten to know these magical creatures well while raising and releasing over a hundred butterflies.  What makes these butterflies so special?  How can we help them?  In this zoom webinar, Elke will discuss facts and myths about monarchs and share stories and photos from their experiences.

Elke Jahns-Harms teaches Music and Social Change at the New England Conservatory and International Development Aid at The Fletcher School. She and her husband began raising monarch butterflies a few years ago and have coached friends and neighbors to raise them as well.  They continue to be moved and amazed at how people react to these exquisite creatures. Elke holds a PhD in International Relations, a Master’s in Music, a Master of Public Affairs, and a B.A. in Geology and Environmental Science.

Join haiku poet Brad Bennett for a Zoom webinar haiku workshop. Following an introduction to haiku, a short history, and a discussion of the main elements of the form, we’ll try our hand at writing a few using a prompt.

They help us celebrate the natural world: they focus on our immediate experience, our presence in the world, and our relationship with natural beings. An antidote to our 21st century rushed lifestyle, haiku help us slow down, breathe, and stay mindful!
