Nature Journaling for Adults

Connecting Our Story to Nature: Journaling to Understand Science is a yearlong nature journaling program, supported by a grant from Indiana Humanities. This program will provide opportunities for learners to notice, wonder, and connect to the world around them through the seasons. Each session will begin with a naturalist providing a nature artifact, quote, excerpt from a nature writer’s work, or physical experience and will continue as students record observations and reflections using writing, drawing, painting, or other methods of creative expression.

Journaling both teaches us how to think more scientifically and allows us to connect with our subjects through art and language. Additional prompts and learning tools will be shared via a private facebook group for the parents of enrolled students and for enrolled adults. A nominal fee of $12 per person will hold your spot for the entire year of programming. Class sizes are limited and registration is required.

Two identical sessions are being offered, 12:30 – 2:00 and 2:30 – 4:00. Adults’ nature journaling classes meet the following Sundays, and participants should make every effort to attend each session:

Hoosier Riverwatch Program
