Join Morrigan DeVito for part 4 of our summer nature journaling workshop series! This is a 4-part workshop series to begin a practice of nature journaling. You are welcome to register for one session or multiple classes. Concepts from previous sessions will be reviewed at the start of each class. 
Nature poetry can help you attune to the landscape, form deeper observations, and express your own thoughts and feelings. In this workshop, we will learn about the art form of nature poetry and read some examples of nature poems from the southwest. You will learn and practice with some poetic devices and structures to transform your nature observations into a poem of your own. Then, we will go outside to observe birds, insects, and plants around the visitor center and take notes on our observations. We will end by coming inside to work on our poetry and discuss our observations as a group. 
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! 
Location: Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve, 350 E Galleria Dr, Henderson, NV 89011. We will meet inside the classroom at the visitor center. 
Note: Space is limited to 10 participants in order to have a good ratio of instructor to student.

She is also a writer and is the spring artist in residence at Clark County Wetlands Park.
