What Do You See When You Stare at a Tree?

During the rainy season, Santa Rosa’s Taylor Mountain Park turns emerald green, with cows lumbering through meadows and oaks reaching for the sky. On January 23, the pastoral scene will serve as the setting for Sonoma County Regional Parks’ Nature Journaling with Families class, at which kids and adults will learn techniques for recording their observations of trees, mosses, bark, and lichen. The class will be held 1–2:30 p.m. and costs $10–$12. Purchase tickets at
