Nature Journaling online with Melinda Nakagawa

August 21, 2020 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History


Nature Journaling is far more than knowing how to sketch. It’s about reconnecting to nature, observing what lies around us, and deepening our relationship to the natural world through curiosity and wonder.

Join virtually as we partner with Spark in Nature’s Melinda Nakagawa. She will lead us on a journey to opening our eyes to nature around us, while building our own nature journal with museum specimens!

All levels of experience are welcome. Just bring a sketchbook/paper, a pencil, and your curiosity! Optional: your favorite color media, colored pencils or watercolor.

Week 1: Native Plants
Week 2: Monarchs
Week 3: Birds
Week 4: Small mammals
Week 5: Reptiles
Week 6: Marine life


This event series is free and open to all, with suggested donations to support PGMNH and Spark in Nature, in our shared mission to inspire discovery, wonder, and stewardship of our natural world.
