Experience fall with nature journaling!
Visit Stauffer’s Marsh, our fourth and final of the PVAS preserves for the year, where we will find wide open wetland views, the rolling woodland area along Back Creek towards the back side of the preserve, and an emerging meadow on the final section of the loop. With something for everyone, we’ll have our eyes open for autumn birds, grasses and wildflowers in seed, evidence of beavers and foxes, and much more.
Come with your nature journal supplies, a chair (if you’d like), and water. We’ll meet at the parking lot, meander the trails at our own pace, and eventually return again to the open space near the kiosk to add details to our work and share techniques and exercises to inspire our nature journal habits.
Whether you’ve been keeping journals for years, or a budding beginner, we welcome you to come out and put pencil to paper in the company of other enthusiasts.
- Bring your journal and any supplies you prefer.
- Dress for the weather, bring bug spray and water, and wear comfortable walking shoes.
- Bring binoculare and/or loupe for observation.
- Bring your own chair for use out in the preserve, if you would like one.
