MBNJC online: Sharing day: Nature journaling in your daily life

June 19 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am PDT

What we’ll be doing:

Let’s explore how you can integrate your nature journal into your life- your hobbies, interests, work, etc.

Come with your examples of how you have used your nature journal!

Perhaps you use the nature journal to explore, document to understand and remember:

  • Garden journal- where you have maps, or keep track of what you planted when, or how you pruned a tree- with notes and sketched.
  • Bird journal- recording the birds you see at your feeder, keeping track of First of the Season birds, or maybe you record which seeds they like, or what time of year they arrive.
  • Baking bread-and the instructions are in your journal with words, pictures and numbers.
  • Class or lecture notes, maybe sketchnotes
  • Hobby, like photography– learning about how to adjust the camera, locations, times of day, subjects
  • Sport or other activity: to learning to hone your skills
  • What are some formats you use to record your specific type of information??


This topic was inspired by a MBNJC member who was curious how we integrated nature journaling (NJ) into our lifestyle rather than NJ for NJ’s sake. How does the nature journal become a expression of your personal experiences, travel, hobbies, gardening, bird watching, walking/hiking? I’m looking for general formats, page layouts, and a way to pull the journal together.”



Start at 9:30 am- end at 11:30am Pacific Time. Schedule:

  • Start with an introduction of the topic
  • Have time for sharing of ideas,
  • We log off the computer to nature journal outside in our own nearby nature,
  • Return to Zoom for sharing our discoveries and journal pages. ***This is THE BEST part- not to miss!!
