In celebration of the Summer Solstice weekend, join us at Cool Springs Preserve for our annual summer solstice gathering, led by Carolyn Duckworth. Carolyn has been keeping nature journals for decades, from Yellowstone to Harpers Ferry, and will share techniques and exercises, in both words and images, 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, any supplies you prefer, and an open mind to trying new materials and techniques. If you have nature journals that you have created, bring them along to share as inspiration.
Dress for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes.
