A Desert Journal
Here is another model nature journal from a naturalist who has been journalising habitats since she was a youngster. In the desert she sees Gila monsters, watches scorpions with a black light and harvests saguaro flowers with a Native American family, that helps her see this unique, arid environment with appreciative eyes. The collage-style journal features clippings of articles about animals and plants, stories of the native Tonoho O'odham, her own youthful journal entries and even her own desert poetry.
Saguaro Moon is a wonderful way to learn about the desert and also be inspired to keep a nature journal.Keeping a journal is an extremely effective educational technique. Now as an environmental educator in her own right, Kristin Joy Pratt-Serafini is modelling how to keep a fun-filled nature journal and encouraging young people to discover a variety of habitats.
