Drawing on Nature

This event last occurred on October 14, 2015, 8 am—4 pm.

Join Tom Gumbart, Director of the Lincoln Conservation Department, in a day-long observation of local flora and fauna from the Rappaport Roof Terrace. Observe nature and record sightings through drawing, painting, poetry, photography, or data charts. Gumbart’s expertise on nature and local history provides opportunity for close observation and learning. Paper, drawing utensils, and binoculars are provided, but participants are encouraged to bring tools and materials of their choice for viewing and recording.

Inspired by The Seton Watch, named for Boy Scounts founder Ernest Thompson Seton (1860-1946), is the act of simply going outdoors to observe nature’s happenings. Seton recorded his observations and sketches in journals throughout his life.
