Practice physical distancing and public health safety, but stay social and connected to nature. This unprecedented time does not need to prevent us from engaging in and learning about our outdoor environment. Our series of six online natural history programs will enhance your observation skills, explore questions, and help you make connections while engaging in an appreciation of the world we live in. Throughout the series we will study and discuss plants, invertebrates, birds, mammals, and more! We will give you tools for learning and exploration on your own to achieve greater understanding of natural science and contribute to ongoing community science databases. This program is good for beginners as well as experienced naturalists.

Each program will consist of three components

  • Online presentation of topic content along with questions and discussion.
  • A week to complete guided outside exploration, observations, gather data, and develop questions
    • Follow-up back online for feedback, questions, and discussion.

Join us for one, some, or all!

Program 6

Neighborhood Naturalist Online: Being a Natural Scientist

Nature journals take all forms from scraps of paper to cabinet doors to notebooks to apps. You don't need to be a world class artist to pursue and engage in our own interest in the natural world by keeping a nature journal. As with any practiced skill, we can become better natural scientists, enhance our appreciation and understanding of the world we live in, and contribute to the scientific community through what we see in our own backyards and neighborhoods. Together we will develop our naturalist skills as we practice asking questions and collecting information to pursue our own curiosities and record them in our nature journals.

Instructions and Directions:

You will receive an online meeting request from us through BlueJeans The day before the program.
