Subject: Beginner's Guide To Nature Journaling

One of the most impactful methods I ever learned to improve my experience of the outdoors is nature journaling.

Nature is filled with amazing things to discover at every turn, but it's also incredibly complex!

The first time I tried to observe meaningful patterns in birds & plants, it was like my brain couldn't fully process all the information coming in through my senses.

There are literally thousands of interactions to explore outside between birds, plants, trees, seasons, weather, insects, soil conditions, ecology, mammals and more. 

But if you don't have some way of sorting through all this information, nature can easily feel like an impenetrable wall of green.

This is why writing your observations in a journal can really help to unlock your brain's ability to unpack natural mysteries and make amazing discoveries.

This is where nature journaling saves the day as one of the absolute best strategies in your naturalist toolkit.

It's a simple & effective tool to help naturalists improve their observation skills and see big picture ecological patterns more clearly.

This is a huge passion of mine with tremendous potential to help people grow along their journey into nature…

So today let's explore 12 simple steps and tips to help you use nature journaling to enhance your connection with nature!
