Have you ever wondered if there was a nature study that could be done in the winter time? Our family, like others, love the outdoors. However, when the outdoors start getting colder and colder it is harder and harder for us to get out and enjoy it.
These five nature study ideas don’t involve going outside; meaning, you can enjoy nature and still stay at home during bad weather.
Here are some great nature study books that we recommend. You might also want to check out our Nature Notebook that accompanies Nature Anatomy. Scroll down to read more about winter nature study ideas.
