Coffee Walk with a Naturalist
When: Sat, November 3, 9:30am – 11:00am
Join us for a cup of coffee and a nature ramble. These easy to moderate walks focus on observing and learning about the natural world. Designed for adults and older children. Nature journaling allows us to discover the natural world through art, writing, and science. It provides a way to slow down and to sharpen and focus our observation skills. During November’s coffee walk, we’ll practice several simple sketching and writing exercises to help us learn about and document the natural world. Pencils and paper will be provided. Bring your own journal and additional supplies (such as colored pencils) if desired. No experience necessary!
