Nature journaling is the practice of recording observations about the world around you. In this class, we will follow in the steps of the early naturalists by learning how to keep a journal of our explorations, build our drawing skills, and explore the land around us, including native plant identification. As you gain hands-on experience in the field, you'll facilitate your understanding of the natural world and form deep memories of your encounters.
