I am pleased to announce that I will be teaching quarterly mini-classes! These will be replacing the quarterly chapbooks I was writing, and they will be available to everyone free of charge, whether live, or as a YouTube video afterward.

This free mini-class will be held on Sunday, June 16 at 11am PST and last about an hour. The class will be recorded and the recording made available on my YouTube channel afterward for those unable to go to the live class. ***To attend live, please RSVP at rebeccathenaturalist(at)gmail(dot)com and I’ll email you the Zoom link; space is limited and RSVPs help me gauge how many people will be attending live, so the sooner you RSVP the better!

If you’ve been following my social media over the past several months, you’re likely familiar with my criticisms of AI foraging guides that have popped up on Amazon in the past year or so. In this free mini-class I’ll show you just what’s in these questionable sources created with programs like ChatGPT and MidJourney. Just how accurate–or dangerous–is the information in them? How can you tell when a book is written by AI rather than a real, live person? And what’s being done to stop the spread of potentially fatal misinformation?
