Wintu Trail :: Nature Study - Eva Varga

July 8, 20122
Our Roots & Shoots outing this month was to the Wintu Loop trail.  We observed some wonderful beauties so our outing was a success.
 We observed these acorn woodpecker holes in a pine tree near the trailhead.
Here you can see a close-up of an actual acorn tucked into one of the holes. We were not fortunate enough to observe a woodpecker in our presence.  Perhaps another time.
When we returned home, we took a different approach to our nature journal.  Rather than choose a specific organism to sketch, we journaled about the outing more broadly, listing the highlights or what was of most interest to us.
We also included a photo of the trailhead along with a map showing the location.  We’ll likely do this more frequently as we progress.

    I think that was a really good idea for a nature journal and will help you remember your day on this particular trail. 🙂

    I really like how you did the nature journal pages. Looks like a lovely outing!
