Join us as we explore the beautiful meadow of Kellys Run through the art of nature journaling!
Nature journaling is an excellent way to sharpen your observation skills, express your creativity, and in the process, learn more about the natural world around you. We will be searching the meadow at Kellys Run Nature Preserve for summer wildflowers, birds, and insects to observe and draw, while learning the basics of biological and botanical illustration.
