Event details

For centuries, travelers of all kinds were also historians. Thoughts recorded in personal journals carried across land, ocean and time helped document historical events. Now it’s your turn! Join an interpretive naturalist and learn how to document your own historic journeys! Participants will learn how to sign their name in cursive, make and decorate their own journals and try writing with a quill and ink. The program will conclude with a journal-worthy short hike.
