Event details

Start off the new year with a new hobby! Nature journaling is a great way to get motivated to spend a little time outdoors every day. Keeping a journal throughout the year will help you track seasonal changes as well as document those “I can’t believe I just saw that!” moments.

The program will start indoors learning new activities to keep your journal full of prompts and ideas. You can take home pages that can be inserted into a journal or make a simple one with us. Then we will spend some time outside trying one or more of the journaling activities.
