Spring Nature Journaling at Ferry Hill Ridge
Saturday, April 27 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join Deana for Nature Journaling!
PVAS Hosts: Master Naturalist Deana Thorsell
This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required and limited to 12 participants.
Come out to enjoy our Spring wildflower walk at Ferry Hill Ridge and walk along the C&O Canal with Deana Thorsell to experience birds singing, wildflowers blooming and life along the Potomac River. We should see some Squirrel Corn, Dutchman’s Breeches, Wild Ginger, Dwarf Larkspur, Cutleaf Toothwort, and Spring Beauty, to name just a few. We will meet at the Ferry Hill Mansion parking area at the tope of the hill just over the bridge across from Shepherdstown. We’ll walk the trail(s) around Ferry Hill and then we’ll make our way to the C&O Canal to walk along the Potomac River.
Some of the areas may be steep. Dress for the weather and come with your nature journal supplies and water to drink. We’ll share ideas and say hello, meander the trails at our own pace, and eventually return to the same spot to add details to our work and share our inspirations.
Whether you’ve been keeping journals for years, or a budding beginner, we welcome you to come out to enjoy Nature Journaling in the company of other enthusiasts.
Should you have questions or would like to know more about nature journaling, please email Deana Thorsell at email@example.com or call 304-264-6335.
About Deana: Being involved with PVAS for many years and participating in PVAS events and activities with my family and grandchildren, I’ve come to love the program and what it offers to everyone. Their staff and volunteers are very professional, experienced and they make learning fun for everyone. I completed the PVMN 2022 class and have become a Certified Master Naturalist. I wanted to give back to others on something that I’m very passonate about and I love doing – Nature Journaling. It’s not about being able to draw (as most think it is), but being in nature, observing what you see, documenting it by words, photography, drawing, cut and pasting, etc. and finding answers to some of your questions that you may be asking yourself. It is your personal journal to do as you want. It’s a great way to reduce stress, meet new people and share with each other our ideas. Try it – You’ll love it!
