WIld Wonder - A Nature Journal Conference

August 27 - 30, 2020

Asilomar, CA

I am will be presenting several workshops and outings at the Nature Journal Conference, along with many other well-known nature journalers.


What is the Wild Wonder Nature Journaling Conference?

John Muir Laws and the Nature Journal Club are thrilled to host Wild Wonder Nature Journaling Conference, an annual event that gathers people who are passionate about nature, art, science, curiosity, and wonder to share ideas, learn from each other, support each other, inspire each other, and have fun together in a nature’s beauty. The first Wild Wonder was held in 2019. 


Why “Wild Wonder?”

We chose this name for many reasons. We chose Wild, because nature journaling connects us with the wild of nature, and wild because we feel wild and free when we journal, and we also wanted our conference name to give a nod to poet Mary Oliver, who asked in her poem “The Summer Day”: “What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” The name includes Wonder because paying close attention to nature brings wonder as in curiosity (I wonder…?) and wonder as in awe. 

Registration is through the Jack Laws's website:
