Introduction to Nature Journaling
May 25, 1:00 p.m.         

"But I can't draw!"  How many times have you said this?  Nature journaliing is not about art but about observing.  You'll come away with some tips to help you see, really see, and to get what you're seeing in your journal.  It's a way to slow down in nature.  We supply pencils, you supply the journal.  For adults and children over age 8.
