Nature Journal: Bird Identification, Behavior, Sketching Birds

Friday, November 8, 2019, 9:00 PM

Do you enjoy nature, but find yourself with lots of questions about what you are seeing? Then this is the series of classes for you. Nature journaling can be a wonderful way to connect with nature. The skills involved – slowing down, careful observation and questioning – serve to bring nature into sharper focus. Today, nature journaling takes on new importance, as we strive to understand the effects of changing climate, landscape use and disturbance. This series will use The Naturalist's Notebook: An Observation Guide and 5-Year Calendar-Journal for Tracking Changes in the Natural World around You by Nathaniel T. Wheelwright and Bernd Heinrich as a template for our explorations. Classes will be held at both the Barnes Preserve in Wooster and The Wilderness Center. Each 2-hour session will include hands-on explorations and short hikes to give you skills for identifying the flora and fauna around you and tips for examining them for your nature journal. You'll be able to share your observation throughout the year via social media and meet-ups with classmates. Winter is a great time to study birds. In this session we will focus on sketching and understanding bird behaviors.
