Forest Journaling at NTBG Herbarium

April 18 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join Kim Rogers from Kauaʻi Invasive Species Committee and Tim Flynn, long-time Herbarium Curator at National Tropical Botanical Garden in Kalaheo! We’ll tour the Herbarium–and do some nature journaling before, during, and after.

The NTBGʻs Herbarium was established in 1971. It is home to more than 96,000 permanently preserved plant specimens. The oldest collections date back to 1837. The Herbarium encourages the use of its specimens and data for research, education, and art. Needless to say, this is a special opportunity for us.

Nature journaling is a fantastic way to deepen your love of native plants. This workshop is geared for non-scientists, non-artists and/or non-writers. No experience necessary. The only things necessary are paper and pencil and a curious mind. We’ll welcome wonder, soak in a little science, make some marks and/or notes on paper.

This event is brought to you by Kauaʻi Invasive Species Committee (KISC) and National Tropical Botanical Garden (NTBG).

Please bring a hat, sunscreen, rain jacket, water, an inexpensive notebook and your favorite writing/drawing utensil. You may also like to a bring a mat or something to sit on. If youʻd like to bring watercolors or other art supplies, feel free.

Registration (here) is required and will be capped at 12 people. While we know unplanned circumstances can come up, please register only if you are confident you will be able to attend and participate for the full three hours.

A reminder email will be sent two days prior to the workshop.
