Looking for a way to get out of the house and see the forest in a new way? Join park staff for this biweekly series to learn and practice the skills needed to start and maintain your own nature journal.
Nature journals are not about being wonderful artists – but instead are a tool to help deepen observational skills, increase focus, and deepen your scientific mind. And they are a tool for all ages, making nature journaling a great family-friendly activity.
In this series, we will learn how to create a nature journal, talk about different types of nature journaling, and practice our observation skills with journaling exercises. Session prompts and journaling activities will help us grow our skills while still allowing for free exploration. This series will build each week on what we learned the session before, but you do not need to attend every session to enjoy the program. Feel free to come to one, some, or all of our sessions (but please sign up for each one to help limit numbers).
Open to all ages – however some exercises will run 20-30 minutes of quiet drawing and reflection. Materials provided, but feel free to bring your own personal journal and drawing medium if you have a preference.
