Introduction to Nature Journaling with Ayesha Ercelawn
November 6, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm$50
Join Ayesha for a morning of nature journaling at the Fibershed Learning Center in Point Reyes Station.
Bring your curiosity and love of nature to join Ayesha for a morning of nature journaling in the Fibershed gardens. We will draw inspiration from the practices of renowned Bay Area Nature Journaler John Muir Laws to focus our attention and deepen our observations of nature. You do NOT have to be an artist or writer to join us! Just bring your sense of wonder and a favorite pencil. Some natural watercolor pigments will also be available from the Fibershed gardens!
Please bring layers, comfortable shoes, a hat, sunscreen, and water. You can bring your own journal or use the paper provided. You are welcome to bring a packed lunch to eat in the gardens afterwards.
A mask is required indoors.
Ayesha Ercelawn is a Marin-based naturalist, gardener, and environmental educator, who has been exploring, and teaching and journaling about the natural world of the Bay Area for 20 plus years. Ecology and ethnobotany classes during her Master’s at Yale School of the Environment, inspired her on her journey – a lifelong quest to deepen her understanding of the natural world around her – its fascinating ecology, as well as how people use plants for healing, dyes, fiber, basketry, and, of course, food.
Ayesha has been fortunate over the years to keep learning from teachers at Fibershed, Point Reyes Field Seminars, Gathering Thyme, Marin County Parks, Friends of the Regional Parks Botanic Garden, California Academy of Sciences, and the John Muir Laws Educator group, as well as the many plants and animals along the way. Her teaching style is light-hearted, with a focus on joy, curiosity, and connection to the natural world.
