Naturalist, photographer, herbalist and author Madison Woods will teach nature journaling at the Hobbs State Park Visitor Center on Sunday, November 22 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Nature is a treat for the senses but sometimes it takes effort to get past the immediate sensory input and experience a deeper relationship. Madison Woods will lead the class on a voyage of listening, looking, and feeling for connections that transport. The class will include an optional easy nature walk, a communing exercise, a discussion and practice of nature translation through words, art, and photography.
Woods is the author of 10 Common Plants worth Knowing (in a Long-term Survival Situation); American Ginseng & Companions; My Nature Journal; and several other titles. She writes a popular nature blog at www.wildozark.com. Her goal is “to bridge the gap between people and the natural world, to remind readers that we are part of a larger whole, and to celebrate that all we see is not always all there is.”
