JOURNALING THE GREAT OUTDOORS – Learn to slow down and observe Nature through keeping a mindful log


Nature lovers, learn how to record your Nature observations by attending Geauga Park District’s monthly Nature Journaling sessions!

 

A one-time fee of $20 for Geauga residents ($24 for out-of-county residents) is required to purchase a journal, pen and pencil for use during the series and beyond. Registration is always required by phone, for the purpose of identifying first-timers, at 440-286-9516.

 

Next up in the series are sessions focusing on Bald Eagles on Saturday, May 21, 9:30 a.m. to noon or 1:30 to 4 p.m., at Headwaters Park; and the experience of kayaking on Sunday, June 26, 1 to 4 p.m. or Monday, June 27, 9 a.m. to noon, at Bass Lake Preserve. This season’s sessions are mostly outdoors, and the kayaking session will even include some time out on the water, so please prepare accordingly.

 

Naturalist Renell Roebuck, who hosts the program, started Nature journaling about five years ago to combine her curiosity of the natural world with art.

 

“I choose topics that I’d like to broaden my knowledge in so that I can pass along my curiosity to my participants,” she said. “In return, they ask questions and share their own experiences with the class. You don’t need to be an artist to Nature journal, you just have to want to slow down and make your Nature observations intentional – literally take time to smell the roses or see what visits them. Beginners are welcome at any time!”
