Bowdoin College biologist Nathaniel T. Wheelwright and best-selling author Bernd Heinrich wrote The Naturalist’s Notebook to teach nature lovers of all ages to be more mindful, curious and knowledgeable about the natural world, no matter where they live, using a calendar-journal format and Heinrich’s classic illustrations as inspiration. Professor Wheelwright’s presentation will describe the origin of the project and the joys, challenges, and fulfillment of keeping a systematic nature journal.
