ZOOM for All Artists, Explorers & Nature Lovers: LOOK – SEE – SKETCH –  11/4 – 5:00 pm ET – FREE 

Now, more than ever, exploring close to home is a way to turn the small and modest into the infinite and boundless. The Nature Explorer’s Sketchbook helps kids look more closely at nature and capture what they discover. If you like exploring nature or drawing or both, this session is for you! Meet the author, Jean Mackay, ask questions, and draw along with Jean as she shares some activities and tips from the book to spark your curiosity.

Bring paper and a pencil, colored pencils, pens, or markers to this session, along with an object from nature (e.g., leaf, rock, mushroom, flower, seeds, shells, etc.). This session is especially suited to the 10+ old artist, explorer or nature lover in your world (and adults who have wanted to try nature journaling).

 Artist and educator Jean Mackay has been exploring and sketching nature for more than 25 years. Working in all kinds of settings, from tide pools to farm fields to her own backyard in Upstate New York, Jean’s nature journals reflect a keen eye for detail and profound sense of wonder. She teaches each summer at the Hog Island Audubon Camp in Maine.

ZOOM To Help Save Endangered Animals – 11/18 –  5 pm ET – FREE

The earth is inhabited by the tiniest of organisms, including dreaded viruses, and the largest animals that sit at the top of the food chain. What they have in common is their interconnectedness and the risk of extinction. Species endangerment:

  • Where is it happening?
  • Why is it happening?
  • What can be done?

Eva J.Pell will be your guide. She is an internationally known plant biologist, former Undersecretary for Science at the Smithsonian, and author of ResQ Takes on the Takhiand ResQ and the Baby Orangutan – adventure novels for middle grade about rescuing endangered species. In this session she will engage the audience with an interactive game which will be the jumping off point to talk about endangered species:

  • their biology
  • their natural history
  • why they are in peril

Eva will use her ResQ series as a point of reference about species endangerment. The presentation will be interactive, with participation/questions encouraged throughout. Come help Eva spread the word and work on how to protect our world order from species extinction.


Audience:  for ages 9+
