In August, the North Coast Nature Journal Club is in for a treat! We are going to escape the heat but still get outside at Heart’s Desire Beach in Tomales Bay State Park! This gorgeous and sheltered beach is nestled between a biodiverse forest and the scenic Tomales Bay. In addition to endless botanical subjects to investigate we will have expansive vistas waiting to be painted.
We will focus on techniques for cultivating curiosity and organizing information on the page. We will also have ample opportunities to practice landscapitos in an incredible setting.
The temperature will be relatively mild but we will be in and out of the sun and despite the protected location wind will probably pick up as the day progresses. Hats will be useful and comfortable layered clothing is essential. Wear comfortable shoes, bring a folding stool if you have one, a potluck item to share, utensils for yourself and water to drink. There is a bathroom on site. We will go for a short walk on fairly even dirt trails and some sand and end up at some picnic tables. Scooters can be accommodated but wheelchairs will probably not be able to work.

We will meet at 9 am in the parking lot. (earlier than our usual start time) Look for people standing around with sketchbooks. Bring a potluck item to share for lunch around 12:30. Bring food that you can carry with you on the trail.
