Natural History Club

Have you wanted to do nature study but just can’t quite figure out how to do it? Or do you know what to do, but it’s just one of those subjects that gets dropped when life happens? Would you like some accountability in doing nature study? Consider joining our Natural History Club this fall!

What: studying 6 different trees, one per week in each season. Sketching, discussing, hiking.

About the Instructor

Dovey Elliott is a mom of 8, has homeschooled for 11 years, and loves the Classical/Charlotte Mason methods. She is a recent transplant to northern Virginia from Indiana and has fallen in love with the beauty of this area. She believes in the value of nature study but has struggled in being consistent in practice. Looking for accountability for herself, she decided to start this weekly group. Her hopes for this group are to inspire a delight in nature and to learn from one another.
