Capture Images of Spring through Nature Journaling!
With wildflowers in full bloom, and migrating birds sally-gleaning from the treetops, we’ll turn our senses loose at the Ferry Hill Plantation. Known for prolific and beautiful and diverse spring ephemerals, the property overlooks the Potomac River at Shepherdstown, and is surrounded by rolling and meandering woodland trails. We’ll meet at the porch on the south side of the house to share prompts and inspiration, meander the trails at our own pace, and eventually return again to talk about what we experienced and add details to our work.
