Join Morrigan DeVito for part 3 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. 
Did you know that roughly 750 native bee species call the Mojave Desert home? In this workshop, we will learn more about our native pollinators and the plants they sustain. To supplement our learning, we will sketch insects and flowers, focusing on the common structures of each. We will observe and sketch flowers and pollinators we observe around the visitor center and supplement our drawings with field notes. After sketching, we will come indoors and learn some tips on adding color to your nature journal, as well as have a discussion on our observations and learn about the life cycles of some of our native bee species. 
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 in 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.
