Nature Journaling

1:00p to 3:00p
Sat, December 16, 2023
Lisa Cole
(210) 688-9055, x2010

Slow down and deepen your experience of the natural world with mindful observations.

Would you like to explore some techniques for improving memory, expressing creativity, building scientific skills, and increasing your connection to nature? Journaling regularly can do all this and more. We’ll help you get started with artist-quality tools, a variety of journaling prompts, and a non-judgmental, sharing atmosphere.

This activity is open to ages 10 and up and includes both a seated activity and a short hike. Minors must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian. No pets please. We will provide colored pencils and sketchpads, but you will need to bring a blanket or portable chair to sit on while journaling. You are welcome to bring your own art supplies if you’d like.

Registration is NOT required. Though the activity is free, entrance fees to the Natural Area do apply. We often fill to capacity. To ensure entrance and save time at the Fee Booth, please pre-purchase and print out a day pass. Meet at the Exhibit Gallery, next to the Visitor Center.

Dress for hiking outdoors. Comfortable shoes, sunscreen, bug spray and a hat are recommended. Wear layers that can be added or removed as weather conditions change. Bring at least 1 liter of water per person.

This program is weather-dependent and subject to cancellation. Check trail conditions by calling GCSNA's main office at 210-688-9055, or go to the GCSNA webpage, Instagram, or Facebook.
