    Hello! I’m wondering if you have the name of the photographer who offers his photos for reference for nature drawing – I think he specifically has images of birds. I thought I might find this information here, alas, I didn’t. Thank you for all the work you do, Jack!

      Yes. Look for Clare Walker Leslie. She got me started nature journaling. Also the author of amazing books on the subject.

    Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods is also an amazing non profit that offers educational seminars, hikes, and workshops on many interesting natural topics and stewardship opportunities in Sonoma County. Perhaps they should be a part of this great network of organizations and stewards.
