Sunday, June 6, 11:00 am – 2:00 pm – The Art and Fun of the Nature Journal

Elizabeth Farnsworth, Ph.D., will lead a session at the New England Wild Flower Society’s Nasami Farm in Whately, Massachusetts on Sunday, June 6, from 11 – 2, on the Art and Fun of the Nature Journal.  One of the best ways to experience and recall the natural world around you is to write it down, make a sketch, and record your immediate impressions in a few sweeps of the pen.  Drawing and writing about plants involves muscle-memory that helps us remember them, slow down and see, and make new discoveries.  Make your first entries in a new, individualized journal, and hopefully develop a healthy, inspirational, creative habit for a lifetime of keen observation.  Join Elizabeth Farnsworth, scientific illustrator and ecologist with New England Wild Flower Society, to learn about and enjoy the art and addictive activity of keeping a nature journal. All materials provided, but bring a lunch and lots of water. Appropriate for adults and older teens. $33 for NEWFS members, $39 for nonmembers.  To register, log on to
