Sketching from Nature Saturday, July 8, from 10:00 – 12:00 – Rain or Shine; Oxbow N. W. Refuge, Bill Ashe Pavilion, 80 Hospital Road, Devens
Come for a fun, informative morning, and surprise yourself. Even if you have or never have done any drawing in nature, you will be pleased with the results. We’ll be walking along the trails, identifying and sketching plants to remember their characteristics. Thus, you’ll be creating your own guidebook to bring with you when you visit other places, and to add to it as well. If it rains, we’ll work in the pavilion. For more information and what to bring, go to "Events and Programs" or "Educational Programs".
