Due to its popularity in June, we decided to offer one more walk of the infamous Bonaparte Estate grounds! Don't miss this opportunity to see the Point Breeze estate property. Famous for its picturesque landscape, wonderful gardens, extensive art collection, and large library, Point Breeze was central to American intellectual and cultural life in the Delaware Valley. Join the D&R Canal Naturalist, Stephanie Fox for a nature walk at the Divine Word, whose missionary now sits on the Point Breeze property. We will cover the terrain where Charles Lucien Bonaparte once observed, studied and sketched wildlife and the landscape. Participants will be provided with a nature journal and given hints and techniques on how connect closer to nature by sketching and the written word. This is a family friendly event and designed for beginner journal keepers to explore their creative side.
