Adult Education Classes, Field Trips, and Audubon Birding Days Cancellation Policy
Julia grew up in the Pacific Northwest and spent her upbringing steeped in creative pursuits, writing poems, songs, and piano melodies. Her connection to nature emerged during a trip to the Klamath Basin where she fell in love with the dawn chorus of the birds. This led her to earn a BS in Environmental Sociology with a Minor in Environmental Science from Oregon State University.
Julia has gathered a range of work experiences, such as tending to endangered plants for the Oregon Department of Agriculture, coordinating activities at an assisted living community, working as a barista at a community coffee shop, as well as immersing in the field of environmental education with MESD Outdoor School and Portland Audubon. In leading writing workshops and nature connection programs, Julia is able to merge her love of nature and writing with her passion for human connection. Outside of Portland Audubon, you might find Julia with her journal open at her favorite pond, cooking and listening to music, or on a walk with a friend.
