INJW Numbers with Jack

Presented for International Nature Journaling Week, John Muir Laws teaches about including numbers in your nature journal:

Numbers are beautiful, numbers are useful, numbers are an essential language for perceiving and describing the natural world. In this workshop you will learn ways to count, measure, time, and estimate the world. This adds new resources to the way you think and record. We will also explore ways to record numbers that help us visualize patterns.

Special thank you and shoutout to Bethan Burton, who created and spent countless hours making the International Nature Journaling Week happen! To learn more about Bethan and INJW, please visit

    I always thought I had the ability to estimate. I was a bit off. 🙂 Very cool. thank you for doing this.

      It is really interesting. Because we can practice without getting feedback about whether we are right or wrong, we get more precise but not more accurate. The best way to improve accuracy is to also check estimates with reality.
