Nature Journaling: Tips and Techniques For Observing The Outdoors


Nature Journaling: Tips and Techniques For Observing The Outdoors

September 29 2021

What is nature journaling, and what benefits does it have?

Some of us go through our days without taking note of the natural world around us.

Can you identify the species of birds found in your backyard? The types of trees in your local park? The daily activities of the family of foxes down the road?

If you can’t answer those questions, that’s OK! But observing, recording, and reflecting on life around you — nature journaling — can help you connect to the outdoors, offering a better understanding of the world we live in.

In this webinar, Riley Chervinski, communications and events coordinator at CPAWS Manitoba, will introduce you to this creative mindfulness practice. You’ll learn tips, techniques, and interactive activities to get you started on your own nature journaling journey.

Note: This is not an art workshop and no artistic talent is required. This event is perfect for beginners and outdoor enthusiasts of all ages!

Please grab a pen/pencil and a piece of paper to follow along with a few short exercises.
