Add to Calendar: iCal | Google

Join Shaver’s Creek staff Alexa Sarussi for a free, in-person morning of nature journaling.

Musser Gap is a gateway to Rothrock State Forest, with varied habitats including shady woodlands, streams, meadows, and agricultural fields. We’ll meet Musser Gap’s Conservation Director, Mike Toolan, to learn about and explore this area, which is a recent extension of Shaver’s Creek.

This session will introduce participants to diverse nature journaling techniques. It will culminate with sharing our learnings and reflecting together. All ages, families, and individuals are welcome. We encourage parents to bring children who express genuine interest in nature drawing and to monitor their behavior. Youth participants must be accompanied by an adult participant.


Registration is capped at 20 participants.

This event is free and open to the public thanks to the generous support of Shaver’s Creek members.
