Local Nature: Winter Writing Walk

11:00am to 12:00pm

How can one capture the wonder of the outdoors on the written page? Engage your senses as we explore the aspects of nature right around your own home or in your memories, recording focused observations, then creating short nature essays based on the birds, fresh dew, deer, crisp weather, mushrooms, and even marine mammals of winter that we’ll come to know. Learn how to articulate your experiences of the natural world in writing!
