LIVE-STREAM WORKSHOP: Nature Journaling for Kids

Join the live-stream via Stimola Live – Nature Journaling for Kids, this Thursday, March 26, 2020, at 4pm.

Kids won’t need to leave their home to engage and reconnect with nature in this free live-stream workshop with Naila Moreira. Children ages 8-12 can learn to make illustrated nature notebook pages from their encounters with wild or urban nature. What animals, plants, insects, and natural objects have you seen?
