What kinds of plants and animals live in your backyard? How does nature change over the seasons, and how are these seasons changing over time? How did Aldo Leopold and his family use journals to study their world? Learn how keeping records can improve your relationship with nature and provide a unique perspective on our planet’s systems and cycles.
This month, you and your family can have fun with phenology – explore a variety of nature records and techniques, practice on our grounds, and find the journaling style that works for you. Learn how to get started, enjoy hands-on journaling activities, check out displays and nature photography, and more!
Be sure to check out our gift shop to purchase your own beautiful nature journal, a copy of Leopold’s famed work, Sand County Almanac, and other nature-themed crafts and gifts!
Note: Exhibits will be open from 10 am to noon on Sunday, March 30th; shortened hours to accommodate set-up for Maple Syrup Fest!
