Event Type: 
Event Description: 

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.

Deb Field, a self-proclaimed "tree-hugging dirt-worshipper", has been a marine & environmental science educator for 25 years. She is currently part of Goodwin Conservation Center's Master Naturalist Program. As an avid day-hiker, birder, and gardener, her main goal is teaching people of all ages the importance of developing an understanding of nature as it surrounds us.
