Handbook of Nature Study Newsletter

February 2016 – Creeks and Rocks

 

Please read the following explanation outlining how to get this month’s newsletter.

The newsletter link is not in this email but will come separately. There may be a delay in your receiving the email so please don’t email me until the second day of the month if you haven’t received the link on the first. For some reason, some email providers take longer to receive the newsletter email.

If you don’t receive the separate email with the download link, you probably aren’t subscribed to the blog yet. This will take less than a minute to do if you follow the steps below.

If you are a subscriber and you haven’t received your newsletter email yet, check your SPAM inbox. Some subscribers have found the email buried in SPAM inbox.

If you need to subscribe:

  • You will need to go to the Handbook of Nature Study, look to the top right corner for the box to type in your preferred email address, and then confirm the email that comes to your email inbox.
  • Once you subscribe, you will receive a thank you email from me with the download link.

This month’s newsletter link will be available only during the month of February so be sure to download it before 2/29/16.

Remember! All of the archived and current newsletters are available as part of the Ultimate Naturalist Library…every level!

Contents of this edition of the newsletter include:

  • Rock and creek nature study ideas, including nature journal prompts and an article from me on a four seasons creek study.
  • Contributions from Outdoor Hour Challenge participants Shirley Ann Vels and Paige Hudson.
  • February Nature Study Planning Page with field trip ideas, nature photo ideas, and a special 15 minute challenge for parents.
  • Creek Study printable notebook page which can be used as a nature journal topper as well.

Resources for your Nature Library: I have started to build a nature library store on Amazon that will feature by category my favorite nature study books and resources. Take a look and see if there is anything you would like to put on your wish list for your family’s nature study library: Handbook of Nature Study Nature Library Suggestions on Amazon.com. Note this is my affiliate store to items I personally recommend and have read or seen in person.

Creek Study Nature Journal Topper

Don’t forget that the last page in the newsletter is a printable nature journal page or you can use it as a nature journal topper by cutting the journal prompt out and adhering it right in your own nature journal. You can see my page above. I decided to use a spatter paint background and then taped the prompt to the top of my page. Now all I have to do is make my observations and record then in a list using a pen.

  1. Hi Barbara, I subscribe to your blog, but this is the second month I have not received the link to the newsletter. I looked in my Spam folder and it isn’t there either. I tried to sign up again, but it says I am already subscribed.

      I’m not sure why you aren’t receiving the newsletter if you are already subscribed. Are you getting all of the other posts in your inbox? How about this…email me your email address and I can reset your account. [email protected]

  2. Barb,
    I also have not received the Link to the Newsletter this month! ??? I got the announcement email, but that was all. And I just got the Outdoor Hour Challenge.
    Thanks for any help!

      For some reason the entry with the actual link didn’t send…sitting in drafts. Argh. I have been so very busy this week that I didn’t notice until I went over to Aweber this morning. I guess I didn’t hit the send button.

      Thanks for your patience and you should have the link in your inbox soon if not already.

  3. Hi, Barb! I have been subscribed forever, lol, but, I, too, have not received the link to the actual newsletter. I get your post on the first saying you will send another with the link, but the only other thing I received was your post today on Winter Weeds and Seeds.

  4. I also received the announcement email but not the link. I too have checked my spam folder and it isn’t there. I also received the outdoor hour challenge email. I really enjoy the newlsletters and would like to get the link for February. Any help would be appreciated.

  5. I received the announcement email for the February newsletter, but not the email with the newsletter link. I have been receiving other emails. Thank you for your help.
