Nature Study vs. Nature Journals
I have come to the conclusion that the line between nature study and a nature journal is getting sort of fuzzy. You can have lots of nature study and not have a nature journal.
Don't let your lack of skill in drawing keep you from your nature study.
Time outdoors+time spent in observation
Time outdoors+time spent in observation+time learning about your discoveries
Time outdoors+time spent in observation+time learning about your discoveries+time recording your observations and thoughts
I am in no way discouraging nature journals but I am convinced that if you spend enough time in nature study, you will have more to write about in your journal.
