Nature Journaling is a practice of creativity and curiosity that draws from our own experiences in the natural world. Join local artist Kim McNett for multi-day immersive workshops and nature exploration at the Peterson Bay Field Station. Learn beginner-friendly field sketching and recording techniques that will strengthen your observation skills. The PBFS is a remote education facility with dock access surrounded by tidepools, beaches and forest trails. Water taxi, meals, comfortable workspaces, basic supplies and yurt stay all included. Nature journaling is a process-based activity - artistic talent is not required.
