Field Trip: Field Sketching at Stebbins Cold Canyon – Rescheduled for March 23

… Rescheduled from March 9 due to expected rain ….

Would you like to enrich your field notebooks and develop a deeper connection with the world around you? Join local natural science illustrator Robin Carlson on a hike in Stebbins Cold Canyon Reserve to learn the basics of field sketching. Through demonstrations, exercises, individual exploration and discussion, we will enjoy the reserve and practice taking our nature observations to a deeper level.

All you need is a pencil and sketchbook, although please feel free to bring any other drawing implements that you enjoy using. Please also bring snacks, lunch and water.

In 2015, after Stebbins Cold Canyon burned in the Wragg Fire, Robin began visiting the reserve monthly to document in drawings the reserve’s response to the fire. You can see Robin’s full Stebbins sketchbook on her Wildfire to Wildflowers blog: https://coldcanyonfirerecovery.com/.

This field trip is coupled with Robin’s lecture “Wildfire to Wildflowers” at the Davis Library March 28 where she will speak about her experiences as an illustrator observing and sketching the changes at Stebbins Cold Canyon since the 2015 Wragg fire burned much of the area.

We will meet 8:00 AM at the Stebbins Cold Canyon Reserve parking lot:  https://goo.gl/maps/rAscxTgrTy32
