August Summer Nature Walk Ideas

Nature Walk Idea

August Summer Nature Walks

This month’s nature planner page has an idea for a simple nature walk that you can do with your family with very little preparation. Note: The nature planner pages are found in Ultimate and Journey level memberships.

In my experience, having a focus during a walk makes it much more enjoyable for everyone. Each person can use their eyes and senses to look for items within the theme and then share them with the group.

One person can be the designated photographer and take photos of things of interest. Or, take along your nature journal and make a record of your sightings as you go along.

    I have logged into my account and am on my membership page. I do not see the August Nature Walk Ideas Printable. Do I need to look in a different place?

    The nature walk idea is on the August 2020 nature planner page. The other nature walk ideas are in the October 2013 newsletter. Hope that helps.
