“I really enjoyed your course Alex. I found it comprehensive but not overwhelming. I enjoy your approach and methodology toward nature journaling and it's a process that suits me really well. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with us. ”


“Thank you for your course, Alex. It Was very motivating and so informative. What a good idea to start it in spring, I think it is a wonderful time to begin nature journaling (again). I really like to watch your videos, you' ve got an "easy to understand" way to explain things. And it is obvious that you love what you do.”


“This course is so informative & inspiring. You’re really selling me on the idea of the two journal system. I can see how freeing the field journal will be. Thank you so much for putting this together and sharing it with us.”
