Rush Ranch Field Trip (and Birthday Party)

March 27, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm PDT

Join the Nature Journal Club as we explore the San Francisco Bay Delta at Rush Ranch. Be ready for raptors, waterbirds and otters. Bring your journal, favorite sketching supplies, and a potluck treat to share for lunch. We will probably have lunch on the trail so bring food in a portable container.

Gift Exchange

It’s also my 50th birthday party so come in a celebratory mood, bring something that you think another nature journaler would appreciate for a gift exchange. Wrap a cool low cost item, such as one of your favorite pens. Everyone will put their exchange gift on a table and get to pick another item from the pile. A fun way to get introduced to new tools. Please no other gifts for JML, just come and have fun.

Rainy Day Plan

See this website the morning of the field trip for alternate plans if rain is in the forecast.

No advanced registration required. $20 suggested donation.

    Happy Happy Birthday Jack!

    I really would like to celebrate and sketch with you today at Rush Ranch, but its not likely…
    I have been traveling (and journaling) around the state and am just back in San Francisco. I’ll catch the NJC next time.

    So sorry to miss your birthday event today.

    Thank you for the wonderful Sketchnoting class in SF yesterday!
    Being new to all this, I have a couple of questions.
    Do non-sketching spouses sometimes come along?
    How long is the actual hike?
    I’m not positive that I can come…just inquiring at this point.
    Thank you.

      Hi there Nancy,
      I am glad you enjoyed the class. Yes, non journaling partners often come along and are welcome. The amount of hinting will not be extreme. Perhaps a mile or two.
