Our 2017 WMNF Artist in Residence Steve Wilkes, a professor in the percussion department at Berklee College of Music in Boston, spent three weeks with us this summer. Steve started his Hear the Forest project, a process of creating an aural map of the Forest through field work that will include recordings of wildlife and insects, waterfalls and rivers, as well as human activity. The recordings are being mapped and made accessible online at heartheforest.org. Let Steve know about your favorite forest sounds!
