Nature Journaling I Session 1

$79

with Jodi Paloni

Calendar May 8, 2019 at 3:30 pm, runs for 1 week

Join us and make a personal commitment to spend more time outdoors. In this class, we’ll learn about the effects that having simple and regular “moments in nature” have on our overall well being while teaching us about the natural communities we live in.

Indoors: First we will gather indoors to discuss the positive outcomes nature can have on our good health, practice simple journaling skills and techniques to capture outdoor moments in inspiring ways, and create a simple nature journal using paper folding and gluing and/or basic hand-stitching techniques. A variety of sample nature journal pages will be on hand for inspiration.

In between: For homework, participants are asked to practice a few “moments in nature” solo sessions and begin working in their newly-crafted journals.

Outdoors: On day two, a Saturday morning, we’ll gather at a nearby natural area to share our homework––– the positive effects we noticed and any obstacles we faced. Next, we’ll practice three hands-on sensory observation skills––––sudden takes, sinking in, and making meaningful connections–––and create “sketches” depicting our experiences using both words and images in our books.

Navigating Mid Coast Maine

$84

with Coast Guard Auxiliary

Calendar Apr 23, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 2 weeks

Here are three easy ways to make boating more enjoyable: 1) learn the basics about the information found on nautical charts including GPS charts, 2) have your charts out where you can use them when enjoying Maine’s beautiful mid-coast waters, and 3) learn about navigation aids (they’re on the charts and on the water) so you can use them to cruise safely. You can do all three things by taking this class. It is an introduction to navigation using a chart of the Boothbay area. 

Learn how to read a chart and become familiar with the coastal waters between Small Point and Pemaquid. Problem sets will help you plan cruises and understand the information found on charts (e.g., buoys, lights, water depth) and to use them while cruising the area. True and magnetic headings, variation, lines of position, chart symbols, piloting, latitude and longitude, and dead reckoning are explained. The Three Rivers chart (#13293) is included. Please bring a pencil and a good eraser to the first class. A parallel ruler and dividers are needed in the first class. If you do not have either charting tool, each can be purchased separately.
