Every season, with its myriad of changes, invites us to pay attention. Using each of our senses we can connect more deeply and learn the lessons of place. Recording observation in a nature journal deepens our relationship to our wondrous home and the world around us.
Welcome to the Seward Nature Journaling blog post. This will be a space to share upcoming events and resources here in Seward, around Alaska, and across the Globe. Yes, nature journaling is an international community of people learning together and sharing in their deepening connection to place through a deeper observation of the natural environment.

In speaking to a young audience about creativity and living, Susan Sontag once advised, “Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration's shove or society's kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It's all about paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager.”
Close attention also connects you with the place you are; the place you live.
