April 26 from 9-11 a.m.: Nature Journaling

Nature journaling is a wonderful tool to make observations, create lasting memories and foster a deeper connection with nature. Each session will cover the basics of nature journaling, including basic art principles and journal anatomy. Monthly prompts will help guide your eyes and ears to the wonders in nature. Bring a nature journal and your own art materials such as pencils, pens, or watercolors. A portable chair is recommended along with sun protection, water and snacks. Be prepared to move along the trail a short distance and sit to document the beauty around you. This program is geared for ages 12 and older. No experience is necessary. The program and parking are free. You will begin on the patio of the Peter and Mary Muth Interpretive Center. Adverse weather may cancel the program. Advance registration is required.
