Nature journaling is the practice of drawing and writing in and about the natural world. When we pay closer attention to our surroundings, we become deeper observers, cultivate curiosity, and strengthen our connection to the natural world. Nature journal clubs are growing worldwide as a way for people to explore outdoors, build community and inspire stewardship. 


 
Current Programs
 
Community Nature JournalingJoin Shaver’s Creek staff members Alexa Sarussi and Olivia Stas for a free, in-person, and socially distanced morning of nature journaling. Sessions will introduce participants to diverse nature journaling techniques while exploring the trails around Shaver’s Creek. Each session will culminate with sharing our learnings and reflecting together. All ages, families, and individuals are welcome! We encourage parents to bring children who express genuine interest in nature drawing and to monitor their behavior. Youth participants must be accompanied by an adult participant. 
 
After-School Nature Journal ClubJoin Shaver’s Creek staff members Alexa Sarussi and Olivia Stas for a virtual Nature Journal Club geared toward kids, ages 8-11/grades 3-5. Sessions will introduce participants to diverse nature journaling techniques while exploring the trails around Shaver’s Creek. Each week, participants will come together on Tuesday afternoons from 4:00-5:00 p.m. EST for one-hour Zoom sessions to practice nature journaling through guided exercises while cultivating community with a small and consistent group of peers (limited to 10-15 participants) to ensure an engaging and socially connected experience. We’re looking forward to sharing how nature journaling integrates science and art, and supports deeper observation, curiosity, and connection to the natural world through the development of writing, drawing, and number skills.
