Nature Journal Workshops

Teen and Adult Nature Journal Program

Artists, writers, scientists, poets, and nature lovers are all invited to participate in this summer-long program. We'll provide a journaling kit so you can create your own nature journal. There will also be weekly prompts on Beanstack to help inspire your entries. Not sure what Nature Journaling is, or how to do it? That's okay! We're hosting two workshops to help you get started and keep going.

If you would like to receive a Nature Journal Kit from the library, please fill out the form here:

Introduction to Nature Journaling

Date: Thursday, June 30th

Time: 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Ages 12 to Adult

Enrich your nature explorations by keeping a nature journal!  Drawing and writing about our experiences can help us slow down, look more closely, and keep a record of the amazing things we observe. In this webinar-format workshop with artist and educator Erica Beade, we'll explore techniques for getting started, look at examples, do some hands-on exercises, and have time for Q&A. Participants will be asked to gather a few easy-to-find natural objects for the workshop. All skill levels are welcome. 

This will be a hybrid workshop, you can participate in-person at the library OR from home via Zoom. You will be sent the link to the Zoom after you have registered for the event. Register through the Event Calendar.

Nature Journaling In Practice

Date: Wednesday, July 27th

Time: 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Join local conservation biologist and artist Becky Harris for some outdoor nature journaling. This is a great way to hone the skills you've gained throughout the summer, and to top up your well of inspiration! Bring your journal, a pencil, and an exploring attitude. Gentle hiking will be involved. Register through the Event Calendar.
