Want to deepen your love of the natural world, notice nature’s tiniest details and spend time surrounded by the beauty of the outdoors? Then start keeping a sketchbook nature journal! Join us for a free journaling field trip in a Jeffco Open Space Park each month and make this activity a habit.

This sunny lower-elevation park is an ideal place to sketch as we head into the colder months. In this outing we will observe and sketch the beautiful grasslands and an unique hogback land formation while learning to use colored pencils. Please bring a portable potluck item for a shared trailside lunch.

All ages.

Please bring the following items:

o Your own sketchbook, a pencil and any other art supplies you would like to use. We will also have some art materials to share.

o Water

o An item to share at our potluck lunch

o A backpack or shoulder bag to carry your supplies

o Binoculars (optional)

o Your favorite field guides (optional)

An email will be sent out if the program needs to be changed or cancelled due to hazardous weather. For the comfort of fellow participants, please leave pets at home.

Also, please join the Jeffco Open Space Nature Journal Club Facebook page if you are interested. The page is a great place to find out about club happenings, share your sketches and journal pages, arrange carpools (in the summer trailheads will start to get packed) and chat with each other.

Registration for this program is available one month before the date of the program. If you are registering during this time, but space is no longer available, please call Lookout Mountain Nature Center at 720-497-7600 to be placed on a waiting list.
