Event description

Description

The series teaches how to create, illustrate and maintain a Naturalist & Field journal. This includes practicing sketching, nature illustration skills and recording field observations.

The circle runs twice a month during the warm seasons (once a month otherwise). Over the year, we explore a few sites of the Fells, and cover forest ecology, phenology, birds, mammals and the many critters that make the different habitats of the Fells.

⚠️ We favor event quality over attendance quantity, so this is a limited size participants event. To reserve your spot, don't forget to register! And if after registering you can't make it, it's totally fine, but then please tell us so that we can give your ticket to people on the waiting list. Thanks!

Age: Teens (14+) | Adults | Seniors.

Instructions

Weather: Event will happen on cloudy and sunny days. A sketching circle does not happen if it rains (or when the temperatures are too low in the winter).

What to Wear: Be prepared to hike a little to get to our study area. The Fells are a little piece of wildlife in our city and a beautiful forest. So...

  • Make sure to wear long pants, and preferably long shirts (and avoid ticks, bites & scratches), and good sturdy shoes.
  • Bring some insect repellent (eco-friendly preferred).
  • Sunscreen for the sunny areas (eco-friendly preferred).
  • A hat...

What to Bring:

  • Please bring your own water and snacks. This event is about Nature so that we protect it better. Then 'naturally', we won't provide single-usage bottles of water or anything plastic-wrapped snack.
  • A camera, magnifying glass, and binoculars if possible.
  • Your art supplies (remember that we hike, so light and portable are key!) » Check our EwA Naturalist Daybag description.

There are no restrooms in the area where we will be observing & sketching.

This series is part of the 'EwA at the Fells' program a collaboration between Earthwise Aware and The Friends of the Fells. Learn more about this program » https://www.earthwiseaware.org/ewa-at-the-fells/

For any question, you can contact us at learning@earthwiseaware.org

$ Free with a value: The value of this free session is $50 a person. The reason why we do it for free here at the Fells is to benefit Nature directly with having us all together connecting with 'It' — here through the exploration of an incredible, unique and diverse urban forest ecosystem.
