Nature Journaling Workshop with Jack Hobe (Oct. 28, 2023)

Saturday, October 28 10:00 am
Saturday, October 28 11:30 am


Nature journaling—observing nature using a notebook and pencil—is a powerful and fun activity. Learn new ways of looking closely, asking questions and using creative thinking by making your own nature notebook in this interactive workshop taught by local naturalist/artist Jack Hobe. Surrounded by beautiful native plants and pollinators at Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve, we will cover the basics of nature journaling—such as observation, asking questions and using words alongside drawings—before trying out new skills on plants and other natural objects. Participants should bring a pencil and sketchbook (or paper and clipboard) as well as outdoor gear suitable for the weather.

Jack Hobe—artist, birder, naturalist, scientist and nature journaler-–loves all things birds and nature. He started drawing as soon as he could hold a crayon, and his interest in birds was realized soon after. That interest has since grown into a passion for birds and the natural world in general. Hobe has learned many of his techniques from the work of master wildlife illustrator and nature journaler John Muir Laws. A passionate naturalist and nature journaler, Hobe loves to notice, wonder, make connections and explore nature through the pages of a journal. He aims to help others enjoy the natural world by teaching them to observe scientifically through their own journals.
