  • There are several printables in the newsletter this month: planning page with lots of simple nature study suggestions, nature journal toppers, nature study bookmark, and a bird life list.
  • Shirley Vels of Under an English Sky has written a very helpful article about beginning a bird study.

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.
