Summer's whirlwind finally seems to be settling-down as the termination dust makes its way down our mountainsides. This time of year brings that calming affect knowing that Winter will be here soon with gardens tucked away and wood stoves crackling once again.
A few days back I heard from Kim McNett in Homer. She shared that the Boreal Nature Journal Club will begin their virtual, bi-weekly meetings, on alternating Tuesdays and Wednesdays, starting THIS WEEK, Wednesday, 05October.
The plan is to rotate "hosts" (basically a facilitator who will make sure things keep moving along) during the sharing circle. The club's approach is to post journal pages on the Facebook page so that folks can see and comment ahead of time. This meeting's prompt is "Maps". The next prompt will be shared at the meeting.
Meetings are short... only 40 minutes. They begin at 7:00pm. If you're interested in participating, head-on over to the FB page to get the Zoom link.
AND, I'll be working over the next few weeks to see if we can coordinate some nature journaling classes here in Seward over the months ahead. Stay tuned!
