Nature Journaling for Beginners

Wednesday October 27th 10 am- 3pm

Join author and professional storyteller Dawn Nelson and spend the day in the beautiful gardens at the Wakes as you walk in the footsteps of Gilbert White. Create the beginnings of your very own nature journal, learn some hints and tips on how to get started, ways to ‘watch narrowly’, observe the seasons and how to make recording these observations a regular habit.

The day will be based at the Field Studies Centre but will include time spent outside; please come dressed for the weather and wearing walking boots or wellies. A light lunch of soup or sandwiches as well as tea and coffee during the day are included in the price. All participants will be given a journal book to take away but please bring a camera or phone to take images for use in the session. All other materials and equipment will be provided.

£40 per person

Suitable for Adults & Teenagers.
