Nature Journaling: Creating Memorable Field Notes
In this digital age, many people no longer put pencil to paper. Nature journaling provides an opportunity to closely observe objects in their natural environment while capturing detail as you see it. It also makes a great extension for the “Sit Spot” exercise. No art experience is necessary - you really CAN draw. Paper and drawing pencils will be provided or feel free to bring your own. 1.5 hours.
