Nature Journaling is a tool to enhance your exploration and appreciation of the natural world.
John Muir Laws guides us through various techniques, such as using diagrams, written notes, and quick sketches, to enhance our ability to observe and record what we see on our travels. Every month, nature aficionados of every age and every level join us as we explore a technique or tool that can be used right away.
Join Naturalist John Muir Laws at the EcoCenter for a Nature Journaling workshop once a month. Whether you are new to Nature Journaling, or you are a veteran, this workshop is accessible and helps anyone use a notebook and pencil to deepen their connection to nature and observation skills when they are enjoying the outdoors.
The workshop will happen at the same time each month, but the topics will be different. All ages and experience levels are welcome. See the Nature Journal Club website for more details.
Upcoming dates at the EcoCenter on Friday after the second Tuesday from 2:30-4:00 pm:
in March: Drawing Big Birds in Flight
Large birds tend to soar on locked wings. As they catch a thermal, they pass overhead again and again, showing you the same angles and views. In spite of this, they are challenging to draw if you do not understand the basic structure, wing angles, and foreshortening principles. In this class, we break down wing fundamentals and foreshortening with hands-on foldable models, learn how to understand and the basic angles that we see all the time and unexpected and counterintuitive angles that you never dared to draw.
Enjoy a walk in the Baylands after class to spot the Harrier looking for prey at dusk.
All ages and experience levels are welcome. No registration necessary, $20 suggested donation.
