September 15, 2019, 9:00 AM - September 29, 2019, 1:00 PM @ North Branch Nature Center
This three-part class takes place in the fields, woods and riverside while observing, questioning, and learning about the natural world around us*. We’ll develop artistic and writing skills with pencil, pen, watercolor, and colored pencils. We will practice techniques and creative approaches including haiku, mapmaking, lists, and special adaptations like pocket-size nature journals, quick handmade booklets, and group journals.
Nature journaling is a flexible practice that can be adapted to your own life and goals. There is no wrong way to make a nature journal, but developing the practice is much easier with guidance, mentorship, and the space to practice diverse techniques and methods.

World Cow is coming to Montpelier, Vermont, and that means we're fundraising for a local charity.
To celebrate a new World Cow mural being installed in September, we're asking for donations to the Montpelier Rotary Club's Backpack Program, which provides food assistance to children from low income families. They send the children home on Fridays with a backpack full of food, so they can eat over the weekend. There are children who don't look forward to weekends and school vacations because they don't eat as well at home as they do in school. World Cow sponsors this program, and we want to make this September a memorable one for all the students going back to school.
