It's hot outside, so what better time to slow down, notice new things about familiar organisms, and document your observations close to home? This is a 4-part workshop series to begin a practice of nature journaling. You are welcome to register for one session or come to multiple ones. Concepts from previous sessions will be reviewed at the start of each class. 
In the first session, we will learn about what nature journaling is, the benefits of keeping a nature journal, and the different styles and methods you can use to create your own a nature journal. We will go on a short walk outside the visitor center and spend some time observing birds, insects, and plants together. In this session, we will focus our observations on gathering metadata, writing field notes about our observations in descriptive prose, and asking inquiry questions. 
The workshop will be mostly indoors, but make sure to bring water and sun protection. Journaling supplies will be provided, but you are free to bring your own. All are welcome-- whatever your skill level and interests! 
Note: Space is limited to 10 participants in order to have a good ratio of instructor to student.
Location: Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve. 350 E Galleria Dr, Henderson, NV 89011. We will meet inside the visitor center classroom. 
Your Teacher: Morrigan DeVito has worked as an AmeriCorps service member for Red Rock Audubon since 2022 and has led birding events for all ages. She is also a writer and is the spring artist in residence at Clark County Wetlands Park. Prose, poetry, and nature journaling in colored pencil and ink are her preferred mediums, and her creative work focuses on how nature restores our attention and strengthens our inner and outer resilience, as well as the interconnectedness of all organisms.
