The Art of Nature Journaling

Do you want a deeper appreciation of the world around you? Do you want to take a deeper, closer, more intense look at nature? Do you just want to record what you see on your hike? Join a Darke County Parks’ naturalist on August 11th at 6:30pm for an introduction to the art of nature journaling. Participants will discuss the different styles, purposes, and mediums used to keep a journal; explore samples from famous nature journals; and try it out for themselves. If the weather permits, the workshop will be outside, so bring a lawn chair and your preferred journaling materials (ex: pens, pencils, colored pencils, tablet, journal, diary, or loose paper).

For questions about this program or any other program offered by the Darke County Parks, please stop by the nature center, call (937) 548-0165, or email
