Here, we dive into the logistics of the nature journaling techniques including choosing a journal or journals, which guidebooks are more helpful, where to go, and much more.  I hope to inspire you to learn more about your ecosystem at home or the ecosystems that you travel to on your vacations or work trips.

Starting something new can feel overwhelming.  For this reason, let me help break it down for you. I’ll work to make nature journaling a healthy new habit for you mentally and physically.  Time spent outside in nature is always a good thing.

Moreover, the more time you spend outside, the more you’ll understand about your surroundings.  For example, this could include the ecosystem in your backyard, the habitat a pond creates, or your wider, regional ecosystem.  With this new understanding, you will have a new sense of comfort.

Let’s get into the basics of the nature journal to include how to capture images.  Additionally, we’ll look into different types of art, painting, and definitely photography.  These journaling techniques will help you dive deeper into your subject, be it a bird, a mammal, or that plant that you’ve seen for years and always wondered what it was.

We will also examine what information to write down, how to take field note observations, and how to create a network of knowledge through your journal.

Come check out some of my journaling techniques and feel free to share some of your favorites!  Feel free to comment or send me a message if I haven’t covered a topic that you would like more information on.  I’d love to hear from you!
