Nature journaling is the practice of taking your careful observations of nature and expressing them by drawing and/or writing in your own individual style. It requires that you slow down and clear your mind as well as increase your attention to detail and appreciation of beauty. There’s something about the act of writing it down, or making a sketch, that will help you to remember the scene forever.
Our journaling guide is Tricia Cassady local artist, educator, and naturalist who has done many similar programs for Soule Homestead Education Center in Middleboro among others.
Things to bring: a sketchbook, drawing pencils, and colored pencils. If you wish you may want to bring your own watercolor paints, a brush, and some felt-tipped pens (water-soluble and water-resistant). Also recommended are a campstool or blanket, sunscreen, bug spray, and a hat.
