Nature Journaling at Whychus Canyon on May 31, 2015

Whychus CanyonThe best place to write about nature is outdoors, in nature. If you’re in central Oregon, please join me and botanist, David Miller, for three hours walking and writing at Whychus Canyon Preserve. We’ll discuss wildflowers and plants, and writing strategies that help capture the experience of all the senses, as well as other aspects of our relationship with nature including memories.

Where: Whychus Canyon Preserve near Sisters, Oregon
When: May 31, 2015; 9:00-noon
