In November, join Marley Peifer to hike back out to Tomales Point for a second chance or a double dose of the Tule Elk! There should still be some of the mating season behavior at this time of year and we will get an opportunity to document it in our journals. We will focus on learning how to draw ungulates, how to draw antlers, and how to creatively depict action sequences in your journal. There will also be plenty of opportunity for painting landscapitos.

The weather is variable at this coastal location so be prepared for everything. The hiking will be moderately strenuous due to the distances we will try to cover but the terrain will not be too technical. Wear comfortable hiking shoes, bring a folding stool, binoculars, and a potluck item to share on the trail.

We will meet at 10 am at the Tomales Point Trailhead parking lot at the very end of Pierce Point Road near the old white barns. Look for people standing around with sketchbooks. This excursion will go longer than our usual meetup to take advantage of this special opportunity. 10am-4pm, potluck lunch at 12:30.

Be prepared for nature journaling goosebumps and a good dose of charismatic mammalian megafauna!

$20 suggested donation. For more information or to contact Marley directly, visit his website here
