Whenever I talk to journalers and outdoor enthusiast the conversation always comes back to learning. What better way to be "outside" when you can't actually be outside then to delve into a good book, podcast or video. Here are some of the ones I have enjoyed and the list will grow as it will always be a work in progress. Have a suggestion? Feel free to send me an email with what you think should be on this list!
Last child in the Woods by Richard Louv A book that delves into the severed connection between nature and children.
A Land Remembered by Patrick Smith Follows 3 generations of a Florida family and the changes in the state.
The Laws Guide to Nature Drawing and Journaling by John Muir Laws Honestly if you are on this webpage do yourself a favor and buy this book.
How to Read Nature by Tristan Gooley This book helps you make better observations in nature.
Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer Beautiful story about the intersection of science and native traditions.
Natures Best Hope: A New Approach to Conservation Douglas W. Tallamy A book that brings forth the idea that conservation can start one backyard at a time.
