Join us at the Southern Oregon Land Conservancy’s Rogue River Preserve to experience and explore nature journaling, a flexible, engaging, and adaptable teaching tool that helps students develop both scientific (NGSS) and social-emotional competencies. Along the trail, we will stop to practice close observation, inquiry, and connection-building using a series of nature journaling prompts. We will also practice giving feedback on journal entries to promote a growth mindset, model outdoor facilitation strategies, and discuss how to incorporate nature journaling in any learning context.
Dress for a 1.5-mile walk along a rustic but mostly-level loop trail. Bring a notebook and a pencil, water, bag lunch, and a camping chair (if you have one). Note that the site does not have any trash cans -- be prepared to pack out what you pack in. The site has no running water but does have a portapotty.
This workshop is co-hosted by: Southern Oregon Land Conservancy, Bureau of Land Management Medford District, North Mountain Park Nature Center
