Join Clare Walker Leslie, a nationally known naturalist, artist, educator and author of 12 books on observing and drawing nature, for a morning of inspiration and exploration. 

Start by learning very basic ways to set up your own onging nature journal to observe teh happenings of nature around where you live, and through the different seasons of the year. Clare will demonstrate simple methods to get you started drawing plants, birds, animals, and the seascape of the Crane Estate and easy techniques for writing observations.

Test out your new skills by starting your nature journal right at the Crane Estate!

All ages and interests are welcome, but all participants under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Please bring several sheets of paper with a firm backing or a drawing pad, 2 pencils, 2 fine-tipped black markers, and colored pencils if you wish. For our outdoor time please come prepared with suitable clothing including a warm layer, hat, sunscreen, and water. Feel free to bring snacks, however alchohol is not permitted. 

 

The starting location and other relevant details for all hikes, kayak paddles, and river boat trips will be emailed to registrants the day before the event at the address provided upon registration.
