What’s Happening In & Around DeSoto State Park

Forest & Field: Through the Loupe

Join naturalists and artists for this creative nature observation hike, combining art & nature! The focus of this nature walk is to reflect your observations of nature using a personal journaling style…..in many different ways! Learn how to keep your own nature journal while strolling along trails in DeSoto State Park. On this hike, we will be using jeweler’s loupes to take a close look at the mosses, lichens and plants that call our forests home. We will use watercolor paints, pens and pencils to record our observations.

Art materials are provided, just bring along your favorite notebook. Watch for other events in this series: each one will be different and seasonal!
