Nature Journal is an innovative presentation of the best columns and photographs from L. J. Davenport’s popular column in Alabama Heritage magazine. Readers of the magazine have come to relish his artful and often witty descriptions of common species encountered in the Alabama outdoors. But Nature Journal is designed to be much more than a mere collection of entertaining essays; it is also an educational tool—a means of instructing and encouraging readers in the art of keeping a nature journal for themselves. Each of the 25 chapters is a self-contained lesson in close observation of species morphology, behavior, and habitat; research in the literature; nondestructive capture of the subject by photography or drawing; and written description of the total observed natural phenomenon. At the end of each account, stimulating questions and gentle directives guide the reader into making his or her own observations and recordings. This book is intended for broad nature-study use in Alabama and throughout the southeast by the general reader and nature enthusiast alike, as well as visitors to museums and outdoor centers, and students of nature and nature writing at the high school and college levels. Beautifully designed to look like a personal journal, it is a perfect gift and treasured keepsake for all lovers of the natural world. Publication supported in part by Samford University

From the day it was released in 2000, Keeping a Nature Journal has struck a profound chord among professional, casual, and occasional naturalists of all ages. In response to this groundswell of enthusiasm, we have revised KEEPING A NATURE JOURNAL, updated the interior design, and created a new cover. Undoubtedly the most exciting new element in this second edition is a portfolio of 32 illustrated pages from Clare Walker Leslie's most recent journals, reproduced in full color. What makes KEEPING A NATURE JOURNAL so popular? It is inspiring and easy to use. Clare and co-author Charles Chuck E. Roth offer simple techniques to give first-time journal-keepers the confidence to go outside, observe the natural world, and sketch and write about what they see. At the same time, they motivate long-time journal-keepers to hone their powers of observation as they immerse themselves in the mysteries of the natural world. Clare and Chuck stress that the journal is a personal record of daily experience and the world around us. Nature's beauty can be observed everywhere, whether in the city, suburbs, or country.

This journal portrays a country year, not as a calendar of flowerings and perennial rituals, but as an artist's impression, recording private special occasions and reflections prompted by a favourite scene or unexpected sight. Culled from two decades of diary notes, these entries evoke the natural year from the Scottish Highlands to the Cornish Cliffs: a red kite stops the mid-May traffic in Dyfed, July in Norfolk reveals Breckland's history and December brings a mistletoe auction in Worcestershire.

A Kid's Nature Journal! The pages of this perfect bound (think coloring book) journal are printed on a very nice 55 lb paper, but markers and paint WILL bleed through. Good old pencils and color pencils are going to work beautifully for your child's nature journal entries. This simple and easy to use kids nature journal was designed with children ages 6-12 in mind (but of course can be used by any age!). My own kids (so I would assume a few others) were always somewhat overwhelmed by the big open space of a completely blank page when they first began their adventures in nature study. So I teamed up with my 9 year old daughter, and we came up with a non-intimidating journal that was fun and easy for her to just take out and use any time, with little help from me. It is really a nature workbook of sorts, and has been designed to encourage frequency of use, and therefore develop the lifelong habit of nature observation. This 8"x10" nature journal has 102 pages total with 45 pages for recording important information on the wide ruled lines (such as the date, location, lunar phase etc.) and sketches. The following pages have been included in the front of this nature journal: * A place to record the owner's name. * A list of nature observation tips. * A few handy supplies. * How to use this journal. * Phases of the moon. * A few animal tracks. * Plants to avoid. Again, the pages are printed on 55 lb paper and markers and paint will bleed through. Pencils and color pencils are what will work best for journal entries.

A step-by-step technique book for creating beautiful imagery and journals inspired by the natural world. Nature has been inspiring artists of all ages since the dawn of history, however, most books on nature journaling focus exclusively on drawing and watercolor painting, and therefore are intimidating or irrelevant to artists who don't feel confident in their drawing or painting skills. This book offers artists and crafters a wide range of experimental techniques for creating beautiful nature journals that primarily use imagery and themes from the natural world, but go way beyond mere drawing and painting. Creative twists on leaf rubbings, plant pressings, non-traditional printmaking, using patina solutions on brass or copper mesh, colorful photo manipulations, layering techniques, and clever ways of incorporating three-dimensional natural objects are just a few of the techniques that are explored. Inspirational writings, thematic sidebars, and related conceptual exercises all help readers create artwork that will resonate on a deeper personal level
