Event Description: 

Join Great Mountain Forest for their summer session of nature journaling, where we will be taking our cue from a list the kids made of things they’d like to do. Make boats from twigs, leaves and other things we find outdoors, and float them down a stream. Build an obstacle course at the brook and splash in the water as we work our way along it.

Be sure to wear your water shoes or sandals and bring a change of clothes in case you get wet. Bring a snack and water bottle, and if you’ve attended before, don’t forget your journal. New participants will get a new journal. We’ll come back to the barn to dry off and write and draw about our summer adventures at the brook.
