Nature Journal Basics: Sunday, May 26th

28.00

Come spend a Sunday morning hiking around a beautiful city park in SE Portland learning the foundational skills of nature journaling and botanical illustration in a small class setting. We will be focusing on family-based plant knowledge and developing a system of observation that will empower you to continue your nature journals after class. This class will be taught by Emilie Rigby.

Emilie has a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science from the College of Environmental Science and Forestry where she focused on dendrology (the study of trees), biology, and urban ecology. She has been teaching nature awareness and environmental science to students of all ages for the past 5 years. She spends her waking hours carving spoons and illustrating the native plants of the Pacific Northwest.

We will focus on developing observational skills, writing and drawing about plants we see, and learning key characteristics of several plant species. This class is less about identifying each plant, and more about giving you a foundation in observations so that you can learn to recognize new plants wherever you go.

What to bring:

  1. Water and snacks.

  2. Good walking shoes and appropriate clothing for spending 2 to 3 hours outside.

  3. Nature journal and writing utensils of your choice. Emilie will have journals available for purchase along with writing utensils and prints of PNW native trees and shrubs.

Loupes and other supplies will be provided for the class with the option to purchase at the end. Many educational materials will be provided at no extra cost.

This class is open to all ages, but children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

More information will be provided via email upon registration, including exact meetup time and location.

Class length: 2.5 hours

Class limit: 12
