Join us at the beautiful Cedar Pond Pavilion to learn about how nature journaling can relieve stress, stretch your mind, and help you connect with nature and your neighbors! Nature journaling combines observation, science, art, relaxation, and fun. Learn the basics so you can continue this enriching practice in your own backyard or anywhere in the world. No experience necessary or expected.

*Please dress for a portion of the workshop to be held outdoors by Cedar Pond.

A world of infinite beauty and discovery waits just beyond the point where we usually stop paying attention. Nature offers us peace, a rich and meaningful place to learn. There is no computer program that can replicate the richness of seeing a flower up close, the intrigue of geeking out with bugs, or the calm of laying on your back and watching clouds. The key to developing a closer connection with nature is deliberately enhancing your powers of observation and wonder. Learn how the methods of a field naturalist will help you notice more, remember what you discovered, and be actively curious. A nature journal is a lens that focuses our attention and crystalizes our observations, thoughts, and experiences. The system is creative, rigorous, and playful, easy to begin and learn, and will grow and mature over a lifetime.  –John Muir Laws

The event is free. Please bring your notebook (a small number will be available for attendees).

Cedar Pond Pavilion is located in The Greens (use address 25966 Cullen Run Place, Aldie, VA 20105 in your mapping tool).
