FAIRFIELD — Naturalist, educator and artist John Muir Laws is coming May 25 to Lynch Canyon to lead a free nature journaling workshop.
The event is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Participants can bring a sketchbook or pad of paper and learn what nature journaling is about. They can also bring a bowl, spoon and something to share for an on-the-trail potluck, a Solano Land Trust press release said.
Trained as a wildlife biologist, Laws teaches workshops, gives public lectures and writes books and field guides. He is the author and artist of “The Laws Field Guide to the Sierra Nevada,” “The Laws Pocket Guide Set: San Francisco Bay Area” and “The Laws Guide to Drawing Birds.”
Lynch Canyon is more than 1,000 acres in the hills between Fairfield and Vallejo along Interstate 80 that is owned by the Solano Land Trust and run as a park by Solano County. To reach Lynch Canyon, take McGary Road along I-80 to Lynch Road. There is a parking fee.
