The Natural Word: Nature Journaling at Floracliff
January 26 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Hone your observational skills through journal writing, as we use our words to explore Floracliff in different seasons. These hikes will give you permission to sit and soak in the life around you and open your senses to appreciate and imagine a bit of each creature’s umwelt or study the intricate beauty in a stone or a leaf. Whether you’ve nature journaled for years, or this is your first foray, all are welcome. We will have specific tasks during each hike that will give you a structure on which to build your thoughts. There will be an opportunity to share our entries at the end of each session, but there is no pressure to do so. The idea behind these sessions is to slow down, stretch our senses, and appreciate the natural world in a nonjudgmental gathering.
During times of cold or rainy weather, the Trail’s End Lodge will be utilized for the writing portion of the program.
Program Leader: Carol Spence, Floracliff Volunteer
Hiking Level: moderate
Optional: hiking poles, snack, camera, binoculars
Floracliff has multiple entry gates. The meeting location for this program will be emailed to all registered participants a few days before the program.
