#NatureJournalingWeek Day 3: Aroma
"Planting a moon garden is on my bucket list, so I knew exactly what I wanted to focus on for this prompt. Night-blooming flowers are beautiful, smell amazing, and attract nocturnal pollinators like moths and bats. Goals."
#NatureJournalingWeek Day 2: Texture
"Poppies are in full bloom & manroot vines are practically taking over thanks to recent rains. I took a closer look at these abundant plants & explored different ways to depict texture — from delicate petals to intensely spiky fruit."
#NatureJournalingWeek Day 1, Color: "Before my first time handling collection specimens, I'd envisioned working with colorful poison dart frogs & red eyed tree frogs. As it turns out, the way wet specimens are prepared & stored causes color to leach out!" — Amy,
an Academy Summer Systematics intern
