Week 2: Nature Journaling and Citizen Science

Nature journaling is a great way to start your career as a Jr. Naturalist. It helps you practice observing the environment around you.

Head outside to have some fun combining art and science. With so much technology at our fingertips, it’s so easy to become a citizen scientist right at home simply by observing the world around you.  Try using iNaturalist to zoom in to identify a tiny insect crawling on a leaf, or use Globe Observer to zoom out and watch the clouds soar above you.
