Do you sometimes wish you could take a break from all the troubling world and national news? Reconnecting with nature might be just the right therapy for modern times, and one of the best ways to do that is to keep a journal. But where should you start? Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor of Natural Sciences Nathaniel T. Wheelwright and Bowdoin College Research Associate Bernd Heinrich have some advice.
Enjoy this latest Nature Moments video, and if you want to make your own natural history observations, The Naturalist’s Notebook by Wheelwright and Bernd Heinrich (Storey Publishing, 2017) provides guidance and a systematic format, with 100 percent of royalties going to conservation and environmental education.
