Community Nature Journaling

Join Shaver’s Creek staff Alexa Sarussi for a free, in-person, and socially distanced morning of nature journaling. This month’s Community Nature Journaling focus will be… Wild Mushrooms! 

Join us for a mushroom journaling walk with Bill Russell. This has been a particularly abundant season for mushrooms, and we are thrilled to have Bill Russell, local expert and author of the popular Field Guide to Wild Mushrooms of Pennsylvania and the Mid-Atlantic, joining us to share his wisdom as we draw and write about nature’s greatest decomposers.

This session will introduce participants to diverse nature journaling techniques while exploring Shaver’s Creek. 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.
