Introduction to Nature Journaling and Habitat Restoration Event
May 14, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Join us for an Introduction to Nature Journaling and Habitat Restoration Event at Roy’s Riffles Restoration site!
Saturday, May 14, 2022 at 9AM – 2PM
Registration is required – cost is free.
We will begin with a two-hour Nature Journaling Workshop and then plant along the banks of San Geronimo Creek.
What is Nature Journaling?
A combination of sketching, doodling, and writing, Nature Journaling is an excellent tool for developing observation skills, a deeper sense of connection, and practicing mindfulness while in nature. Journaling slows you down and is also a way to document and remember your own particular experience in nature.
You do not have to be an artist or writer to journal with us – all skill levels are welcome! Just bring your sense of wonder and a favorite pencil. We will unpack several foundational Nature Journaling practices and journal whatever presents itself on that day – plants, birds, animals, the stream, rocks, insects, clouds – anything is possible! This is not an art technique class. Participants can bring their own journal or use the sketch paper provided.
Please RSVP to Preston Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org). Space is limited.
The cost to the event is free, but a suggested donation of $10 per person will help cover the cost of the materials.
