During March I tried some new ways to do nature journaling for two of my entries. I enjoyed this way of journaling a lot and plan to do it again this year.
The first way is an overview of the month. Each of the boxes is colored in with a different color Prismacolor color pencil and then decorated around the border with a Prismacolor marker.
The second way is a chronological list of different highlights from the month. I thought that if I would have this by my bed that I would write what I saw each day in the nature journal. It didn't quite work out that way. I think I need to develop that practice more if I'm going to do it again.
The fourth entry focused on two sounds I heard on March 27th around the pond on our farm: Spring Peeper Frogs and Killdeer (the largest type of plover). I had run out of space on the chronological list, yet wanted to document these seasonal markers.
Although I didn't do this entry in my nature journal, I did do an online post about zoo animals. The Handbook of Nature Study profiled ten animals. Many were ones that we have seen during the past ten years. So, I included photos of the animals that we saw at zoos, sanctuaries, or in the wild.
