Tule Elk Nature Journaling

  • Pierce Point Ranch Tomales Point Trail Inverness, CA, 94937 United States (map)

Join naturalist Marley Peifer, founder of the North Coast Nature Journal Club and CCNH naturalist, to hike out on Tomales Point and see the elk herds during their rut and enjoy the overall epic scenes! The Tule elk will be on their most dramatic behavior 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 landscapes.

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. 

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 and layers. Bring a folding stool, binoculars, a sketchbook and art supplies, and a potluck item to share on the trail.

10am-4pm, potluck lunch at 12:30.

$20 suggested donation. No one turned away for lack of funds.
