.John Muir, Rachael Carson, Henry David Thoreau, and Beatrix Potter were all naturalists who kept journals as a way to continue a curiosity about, carry on a conversation with, and document observations of the wildlife and seasonal patterns around them. We’ll be sharing a variety of sketching, painting writing, using creative tools and techniques, inspiring our own nature journals, making our connections to the outdoors…second nature.
