MAY I BRING MY CHILD? Yes, these walks are appropriate for children who enjoy contemplative activities in nature. Feel free to email Alyson if you have specific questions.

NATURE JOURNAL? Alyson will introduce you to the wonder and delight of the nature journal, a special way to experience the natural world. We will enhance our perceptions and insights through simple techniques used through the ages by naturalists, poets, and visual artists. NOTE: No previous visual or verbal artistic skills are required. Part of the magic of the nature journal is that it records your own in-the-moment experiences as a process, a kind of flowing visual mediation in action.
