Nature Study Class: Keeping A Nature Journal & Recording Observations

Drawing of a Nature Journal

I know that keeping a nature journal sounds pretty straightforward, but depending on your goal you can turn it into more than just a journal. One of the objectives for this class is to help participants look closer at the world around them. With this in mind I’d like to help make your journal a more effective tool and road map for your travels in nature.

Coyote Resources on Pinterest

I know I’m late to the party, but I’ve finally discovered how addicting Pinterest can be. I’ve had an account for a while (you must have one if you want to view anything on their website, which I find annoying) but haven’t put any direction into it until today.

Free Resources for Nature Study Class

Nature Study Site

As part of the free nature study program I’m running through the blog, I have created several resources that will be offered free to class participants.  How do you become a class participant? Simply by sharing your experiences each class in the comments section. It doesn’t matter when – the class is self-directed so you can join any time and take as long as needed between classes. And I’ve only published the first two; the third class will be available after January 1st. If you are joining us and let me know in the comments, I will email you the resources as they become available.

Nature Study Program – 2nd Installment, Mapping Where You Are

Updated map

The undeveloped land around our house where I spend time tracking, hiking and studying.

In the first nature study post, I talked about finding a ‘sit spot’; someplace near where you live or work where you can spend some uninterrupted time observing the natural world. Your spot doesn’t have to be remote or in an undeveloped area. Quite the opposite – I would like your sit spot to someplace you already connect with and want to learn more about through this program.
