Keeping a nature journal is one of the best ways to enhance appreciation and become a more attentive observer. The Naturalist's Notebook features a unique year format for creating a long-term record andd point of comparison for memorable events, such as the appearance of the northern lights, a big blizzard, the peak of autumn foliage, or a period of drought.
In the introductory chapters, biologist Nathaniel T. Wheelwright and best-selling author Bernd Heinrich teach nature lovers of all ages what to look for outdoors no matter where they live, using Heinrich's classic illustrations as inspiration.
The specially designed record-keeping pages make it easy for users to jot down one observation a day and watch their field notes collect over 5 years as The Naturalist's Notebook becomes a treasured record of the special place where they live.
