Whether you live in a country house or a city apartment, you can step outside and find nature everywhere. If you pay attention, you will see amazing things happening in your own backyard. Recording what you see is a method that has been used by scientists for centuries. In this series, we will meet four times as a group over Zoom (30–45 minutes each time), and complete one activity a week between meetings. You will receive your own journal, where you will record what you observe in the outdoors. You can use drawing, writing, photography, or a combination of all three. Photographing outdoors with available light will be a focus, but also improving your observation skills. Sharing your results with the group is encouraged! Anyone with a phone or camera and access to the outside can participate. Materials are provided for this workshop and will be mailed or available for pick up. Suggested donation $7 for materials costs. Register by July 16.

Youth ages 9 and up; open to Maine youth; maximum 12 attendees.

This event takes place over four consecutive Thursdays, starting July 30 and ending Aug. 20.

Sponsored by University of Maine Cooperative Extension.
