Nature Journal Club

“Oh, good scholar, I say to myself, how can you help but grow wise with such teachings as these— the untrimmable light of the world, the ocean’s shine, the prayers that are made out of grass?” Mary Oliver

Once you see the beauty of grass, you can lose yourself for hours in a vacant lot or quiet prairie. Learn how to make a careful scientific illustration of grass species you find in the field. Learn tricks to help you handle and delight in the calligraphy of twisted leaves. Discover ways to draw a distant grassy field, capturing the feel of clumps of bunchgrass. This workshop will be great preparation for the upcoming Nature Journal Club trip to the coastal prairie!

All ages and experience levels are welcome. 

Note: the venue for this workshop is Crissy Field Center in the Presidio. Doors will open at 12:15pm and you must ring the doorbell to be let into the building. We will meet in the gathering room to your left as you walk in. 

Please note: Park Academy classes are meant as a special perk for volunteers, members, and employees. If you do not work for the Golden Gate National Parks, are not a member, or have not volunteered with us in the past year, a donation is encouraged. Volunteer or become a member today!
