Take a Walk on The Wild Side!

A Walk in Nature Journal: Recordings of a Wild Child is a brand-new resource for children aged 6-12. But! A wild child exists in us all, regardless of age. So consider this a loose recommendation. 

Explore, learn, and grow in the great outdoors. Full of quotes, facts, writing prompts, and plenty of room to record sketches, field notes, and species observations, this nature journal, containing over 100 pages, is designed to get the imagination flowing. This journal is so much more than a workbook. It’s a tool to establish strong connections to nature and each other. It’s an investment into what matters most—the health of your wild child!

And, because nature nurtures children from all backgrounds, your wild child can record observations from 20 different walks on pages that are engaging and full of graphics that highlight the inclusivity of the outdoors.

With this journal, the structure of each walk remains the same, repeating over 4-pages. There is a page to record the date, location, weather, and general observations (I see, I smell, I hear, I feel). As well as pages to sketch, make field notes, and record a story about the walk. Each walk also features quotes, a multiple-choice question, and a writing prompt to encourage extended learning. 

Additional pages include:

  • A letter to children, parents, and educators
  • A place to record the name of the journal’s owner
  • A supply list
  • Tips on wildlife safety
  • And species observation logs for mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, insects, and plants

Paying it forward! With this purchase, stewardship principles that protect the long-term health of the environment are passed along to a new generation. And 100% of proceeds from The Outdoor Learning Store go back to supporting outdoor learning non-profit initiatives.

So, what are you waiting for? Go wild, get outside, and record your nature observations!

Author & Creator: Jen Baker

Jen is a passionate creator of beautiful resources by night, and the Resource Wrangler at our Outdoor Learning Store by day!

She grew up among the rolling prairies of Manitoba, spending more time outdoors than in. Her love of animals and appreciation for nature led her to pursue a career as a wildlife technician. Eventually, searching for grizzly bear “rub trees” in the foothills of Alberta gave way to raising two little cubs of her own. For now, wildlife work has given way to wild life living, and Jen aims to ensure her kids love the outdoors as much as she does.

In addition to camping, hiking, and snowboarding, Jen spends her time writing children’s stories about different wildlife conservation topics. She is excited to be part of the Outdoor Learning Store Team, developing & publishing amazing resources, bringing outdoor learning goodies in the door, and getting orders out the door and into the hands of educators!
