Science and Journaling in Nature (Stockton)
May 16, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Evening Program featuring John Muir Laws, known for nature journaling and his investigative approach to science.
Teachers, Families, Community Members are invited to a public presentation by John Muir Laws. Author of six beautiful books, he shares his love of nature and his belief that “Anyone can draw and everyone can try a new way of observing.”
Did you know that your powers of observation and curiosity are not static traits but skills that you can develop and enhance? How can you get more out of every nature ramble? Developments in neuropsychology have opened doors in our understanding of the brain and cognition and how you can train yourself to see more and to be more curious about what you discover. Naturalist and illustrator John Muir Laws will demonstrate simple and fun techniques you can incorporate into your own recreational nature study, classroom, or family outings. You will learn an adaptable three-step approach that will dramatically increase your memory and observational skills, focus and heighten your curiosity, help you think more creatively, and give you a framework for exploring mysteries in nature.
