Time outdoors is time for turning your attention outward, attuning your senses, and experiencing the world that surrounds you. For as long as paper and pencil have fit in our pockets, scientists, naturalists, and all who are curious have recorded observations of the natural world.
Nature Journaling devotes more time and focus to this activity, allowing us to slow down and hone the skills that help us to see and feel what we might otherwise miss. It requires no special talents -- in fact, if you have ever said, "I can't draw!", then this class is for you.
Virginia Master Naturalist and experienced Nature Journaling instructor Lynn Wilson will lead you on your journey as winter turns to spring along Reedy Creek in the James River Park System. The class will begin with an indoor presentation and orientation in the Nature Center and---depending on weather and temperature---provide ample opportunity to explore outdoors and spend time in quiet reflection with your notebook, pen, and pencils.
The $15.00 registration fee covers your journal, artist's pen, and a set of colored pencils and registration for five students from Groundwork RVA, a local nonprofit whose mission is "cultivating the next generation of urban conservationists in Richmond".
