BirdLife Castlemaine Nature Journaling

  • Date Sunday, 5 February 2023
  • Time 9:30 am - 11:30 am
  • Locations Wombat Hill Botanical Gardens


Be prepared to sit quietly, to observe the comings and goings of nature, and draw, paint, photograph, and write about your experiences. No experience necessary, but you will need to be self-sufficient.

What to bring?

Sunhat, long sleeves and long trousers, sturdy footwear suitable for uneven ground. Sunscreen, water, snacks.

A small selection of art materials such as paints, pencils, pens, coloured pencils, pastels, paper, water container if applicable, camera or phone and binoculars if you have them. A bag to put it all in.

Something to sit on. Your sense of curiosity.
