Nature Journaling Workshop with Clare Walker Leslie

Sunday, October 29, 2017, from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m.
Williams Barn Conservation Land, 160 Chicopee Row, Groton, MA

Join naturalist, educator, artist, and renowned author Clare Walker Leslie for a hands-on opportunity to set up your own Seasonal Nature Journal, with both writing and simple drawing techniques. The Nashua River Watershed Association is offering adults, and children ages 12 and up, the opportunity to attend a free Nature Journaling Workshop with Clare. In the tradition of Explorers and Scientists, the importance of documenting what was seen and when was vital for regularly recording both what was nearby as well as far away. Today nature journals can be kept for many purposes and reasons including documentation of the life around us, and our own artistic expression of what we see and experience in nature. Clare will help you set up your own journal based on a phenology format of date, place, time, and weather whether it be for your backyard, when on a hike, or for documenting your local Nashua River. The workshop will involve both indoor and outdoor activities. Attendees should bring a sketching journal or paper with pencil or pens and any field guides you might find useful to your area. Dress for outdoors, Williams Barn is not a heated space. Clare will also have copies of her books to purchase. Learn more about Clare. This free family workshop is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Groton Trust Funds’ Lecture Fund. Limited to 40 registrants; pre-registration is required.
