Handbook of Nature Study Newsletter – April 2014 Backyard Observations

Handbook of Nature Study Newsletter April 2014 Backyard Habitats

April 2014 – Backyard Observations and Habitats

During this transition time, I am going to offer the April 2014 edition of the Handbook of Nature Study newsletter to everyone. There is such a snag in converting my subscribers from Feedburner to Aweber that it is impossible for me to continue using the old way to share the newsletter this month. Hopefully, all the problems will be ironed out by the end of April and you will again need to be a subscriber in order to receive the newsletter again. Until then, accept this issue as my gift. I know you are going to enjoy the contents!

Contents of this edition of the newsletter include: 

  • 6 articles encouraging backyard observations (4 from OHC participants)
  • Spring Chalk Pastel Tutorial from Tricia Hodges. Plus a discount code for her latest ebook!
  • April Nature Journal Topper printable activity
  • Recommended study links
  • More easy ideas for nature study in your family

    Also, I thought I would try again to subscribe to your mailing list, but your mail is inactive. Please fix it! :)

    Thanks for the newsletter. I’ve had issues in the past with switching newsletter services too – it’s really a pain. I hope it works out well for you soon.

      It has quickly become a complete nightmare but I am trying to stay calm and look at the big picture. I have such wonderful readers who have been so patient with the process of transition.
