Nature Journaling

It doesn’t matter where you live–in a city, the country, or a suburb–there is always something beautiful that surrounds you. You just have to begin to notice it! Nature journaling helps you slow down, let go of the never-ending tasks on your to-do list, focus on the natural beauty of the world, and find a peaceful place within (even for just a moment). Using words, drawings, numbers, pictures, and even colors, nature journals document your experiences. You don’t have to be an artist, a writer, or a gardener to journal about the natural world. Experience nature journaling for yourself! Join Stephey Baker, local artist and avid urban gardener for bumble bees, as she guides you step-by-step in creating a nature journal unique to you. Journaling in nature improves observation skills and memory, engages your five senses, decreases your blood pressure, and allows you to discover something new every day. Through this course, you can make a nature journal just for yourself, or share the beauty and wonder of nature with someone special by taking the class together with them.
