From the day it was released in 2000, Keeping a Nature Journal has struck a profound chord among professional, casual, and occasional naturalists of all ages. In response to this groundswell of enthusiasm, we have revised Keeping A Nature Journal, updated the interior design, and created a new cover. Undoubtedly the most exciting new element in this second edition is a portfolio of 32 illustrated pages from Clare Walker Leslie's most recent journals, reproduced in full color. What makes Keeping A Nature Journalso popular? It is inspiring and easy to use. Clare and co-author Charles Chuck E. Roth offer simple techniques to give first-time journal-keepers the confidence to go outside, observe the natural world, and sketch and write about what they see.

Discover a whole new wya of seeing the world around you

I am starting a nature journal as part of my own learning process/growth - and this volume will continue to be a go-to guide for different approaches and inspiration.

Z may or may not take a shine to keeping some type of science-based journal as he gets older . . . this is a book that will provide some food for thought for him as well. ( )

I've been nature journaling both personally and in my biology/env.science classes for almost five years and use this book constantly both as a guide and as an inspiration. Ms. Leslie's sketches and descriptions are a tribute to scientific journaling. I cannot recommend this book highly enough for anyone interested in recording their outdoor thoughts, ideas, and adventures. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
This book is dedicated to my daughter, Anna, because she has been with me throughout the whole process. It was Anna and her friends who gave me the courage and the support to find a way through to publication - suggesting exercises, offering their own drawings, being women naturalists of the future. ---Clare Walker Leslie
I would like to dedicate this book to my mentor - naturalist-educator Charles Mohr, who guided my early ventures into natural history - and to my five grandchildren, who may each find in these pages a way to develop their own sense of place in a changing world. ---Charles E. Roth
First words
Many of us are looking for ways to connect better with nature - to learn its patterns, to help protect its inhabitants, to gain an understanding of what makes our own lives tick.
