Making Nature Journals at the Park

Explore printmaking and bookmaking as you create your own spiral bound nature journal.

Make your own spiral bound nature journal with bookmaking tools and supplies in the Pony Shed. Decorate the cover with printmaking techniques using leaves and ferns, or make your own heat moldable foam stamps to capture shapes and textures of natural specimens. These journals are great for writing or drawing. All materials are provided.

This class is held at the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park in the Pony Shed.
