Individual Nature Journal

This is an example of what I think of as a "contemplative" nature journal--it incorporates actual found objects from nature, personal photos and art work with journal entries, poems, facts, memories...whatever is meaningful to the individual. This is a great project to do with an inter-generational group where experiences and abilities will differ widely. Instructors can offer suggestions for entries (for example, find a picture of yourself as a child taken outdoors, and re-create the memory in a collage of words, drawings and found objects from nature) or allow individuals to proceed with their own ideas.
