Here’s something you might like to to try out that combines wandering and doodling.

Take a slow walk around where you live. Enjoy the day, the temperature, breeze, scents: simply be aware.

As you go, look for a tree (or a plant) you don’t recognise.

Take some pictures, make a few notes – height, distinguishing features, etc.

Bring all of this home and go online (in the UK, the Woodland Trust is a good place to go) to identify the tree and find out more about it.

Make an information card with a doodle and facts you find interesting and intriguing: perhaps attach it to the tree for others to find and read.

Keri Smith’s The Wander Society is a wonderful place to start exploring wandering, and you can find out more about the Wander Society here.
