Bird Language Workshop
I N S T R U C T O R
Jess Lerner is an educator, naturalist, and deep nature connection facilitator. With bird language, Jess has found a way to channel her love of the avian into an opportunity for facilitating connection with the more-than-human world.
Trained in the 8 Shields model of experiential learning and community building, Jess has been on the team of numerous bird language workshops both as participant and facilitator, and has had the fortunate opportunity to be mentored by bird language masters. Immersed in cultural repair work and nature based education, Jess is currently on staff with Wilderness Torah as a lead mentor, garden and environmental education specialist at Lagunitas School District, and is an independent facilitator of local nature connection programming both in California and Massachusetts. A true bird nerd, she is often found with her eyes to the sky.
Jess's background includes founding and directing a green living consulting business, working with conservation biologists to protect endangered bird species, and helping spearhead local environmental campaigns with short films she directed and produced. She holds an MA in Environmental Studies from Brown University and recently received her California Naturalist certification from the University of California.
