Haiku is a simple poetic form about fleeting moments in nature. Written to be read in one breath, the essence of the haiku is in its visual intensity, invoking an image in the mind of the reader. It teaches us the power of observation, to be present in the moment and help foster gratitude for the natural world. Join award-winning haiku poet and naturalist Jeff Hoagland to discover the connection between haiku, nature observation and intimacy with nature.

Jeff is the education director at the Watershed Institute in Pennington, New Jersey, dedicating over 35 years to environmental education. Jeff enjoys sharing his passion for the natural world and examining, with thousands of students annually, our place and role in it. Jeff has earned numerous awards and distinctions for his environmental leadership and practices haiku as an antidote to a busy life and to stay connected to the “real” world. He has published several hundred haiku, appearing in a wide range of journals and anthologies.
