Arizona Science Center: DIY Nature Journal

Nature is all around us, and all we have to do is take some time to look around!

A nature journal is a great way to express yourself, and the natural world. You just need a few materials, and a good spot to sit. This activity can be done from your front or backyard to a park or a hiking trail. Use all 5 of your senses when creating a nature journal! Observational skills in nature are essential to a lot of environmental science jobs. Park rangers, biologists, hydrologists, ecologists, and more, all have to look at natural systems to learn about how they change and if they are at risk.
