Lots to observe and ponder at the Ellis Preserve | Staff Archive
This field trip will introduce some basics of journaling and sketching as ways of creating a record of observations experienced while spending time in nature. You do not need to be an artist, writer or naturalist to create an illuminated journal. Acting as a lens and focus, journaling can deepen our relationship with the world around us and kindle sparks of creativity. Materials will be supplied, though if you have a favorite pencil or pen, feel free to bring it along.
Location: Marilyn and Fred Ellis Preserve on Shaw Island
Bring: Water, a pad or cushion for sitting on the ground
Leader: SJPT Interpretive Specialist and Curator, Ruthie Dougherty
