Nature Journaling Workshop

August 17 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

$5 – $15

Do you enjoy spending time outside? Want to look beyond the “green blur” we so often see as we wonder? Come out to Oxbow to take a closer look at the world around us. We will be learning how to nature journal like a naturalist by observing details that we often miss of the plants around us. Fun for all ages!

This workshop is intended for all ages. Children must be accompanied by an adult.


MK Kirkpatrick-Waite is originally from Monterey, California. During her time in California, she received a BS in Environmental Management and Protection, with a focus on Environmental Education at Cal Poly Humboldt. For several years after you could find her navigating through redwood forests with students at residential outdoor school programs. MK moved to the Pacific Northwest in the fall of 2020 and continued to work in environmental education throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. MK became a program coordinator for a residential program in North Cascades National Park. During her time there, she created and implemented EE programs based on Next Generation Science Standards for schools from Whatcom, Skagit, and King County. MK’s passion for placed-based education and sustainable practices brought her to Oxbow, and she is looking forward to working with the community members of Snoqualmie Valley. You can find MK digging through fresh dirt with students in Oxbow’s Living Playground, or walking along the many trails that the site has to offer.


We strive to create accessible learning and connection opportunities for our whole community.
