Sip, Sketch and Socialize Virtual Edition
Let’s gather virtually with a delicious beverage to slow down with sketching and writing in nature journals, and of course, connecting with each other as we share our stories about our favorite outdoors spaces. As part of the Write Out Project with the National Park Service, we’ll spend some time observing, drawing and writing in our nature journals, thinking about our connections to outdoor places. Is it the trees that you love? Are there birds you enjoy watching at different times of year? Or maybe the space is important to your family? Let’s talk about it! Sign up to join.
