Nature journaling helps you enjoy the natural world in a whole new way. You can take just a short hike, or even stay in one place, and see, hear, smell and touch more than you ever thought possible. Using words, numbers and drawings, you will learn to record your experiences in a way that works for YOU. There are no rules, and no art “ability” necessary! We will talk about what nature journaling is all about, and what materials and tools you may wish to use. We’ll do some easy exercises to get you started, and have lots of time to practice and explore using the materials provided.
Tickets are $10 for general audiences, $5 for students, youth (12-17 year olds, must be accompanied by an adult), Sugarloaf members, Sugarloaf volunteers, and free for children under 12. This event is welcome to all ability levels, and is accessible for those with limited mobility. Meet at the group camp. You are welcome to bring any art supplies that you have, but just a pencil will do. Bring water, sun protection, a snack, and if desired, a picnic to enjoy afterwards. Parking fees apply.
Ease of access: The group camp is a large area outside of the Robert Ferguson Observatory. The ground is a mix of soil and woodchips navigable on a power chair. There is an accessible porta-potty and a water spigot on site. The picnic tables and benches are not ADA-compliant but are available. The group camp parking lot has one van-accessible designated parking spot. Although the rest of the parking area is not designated as accessible, it is an open dirt lot that can accommodate up to 25 vehicles.
