Once a Month Nature Journal Project – Outdoors

Once a Month Journal Project – June Idea

Now that the weather is warmer and we spend more time outdoors, take time to create a nature journal page while out in the fresh air. Bring your journal (or notebook page), simple drawing supplies, and perhaps a field guide with you during your Outdoor Hour Challenge. Sit somewhere comfortable with a view that you would like to capture in your journal. Or, you can find a subject to draw in detail, sketching it in its natural habitat.

Nature Journal Page Ideas:

  • Find an interesting place to sit: under a tree, alongside a creek, in an open field. Let the environment inspire you to sketch the scene.
  • Gather a few small things to draw while you sit outdoors. Pay close attention to detail and make appropriate captions.
  • Take your journal along with you on picnics, camping trips, and vacation spots.
  • Find a spot in your garden, yard, or local park to visit frequently and create sketches for your nature journal.

I have created a Pinterest Board for journal page examples. I will label each entry with the prompt that describes it best for future reference.

If you would like to contribute to the board, you will need to follow this Pinterest Board and then leave me a comment letting me know you want to be added. Important: If you contribute to the board, you need to include in your description the prompt it is featuring.

Sample: Our The Window Nature Journal

If you don’t include a description using one of the monthly journal prompts, I may remove it. This is not a board to post general nature journal pages. It is strictly for pages created using one of the twelve monthly prompts as part of this project.

Please note that you are not committed to make a journal each month…participate as you can and share your results to encourage others.
