John Muir (Jack) Laws' website says:
"Join the Nature Journal Club for an adventure in Tilden Park. We will meet in front of the Environmental Education Center (EEC) and explore the park, sketching and writing about the plants and animals of the canyon and using techniques from our new naturalist toolbox to investigate and discover patterns in nature.
Bring: your journaling kit, a potluck treat to share at lunch time, a fork and bowl.
Optional: compass, binoculars, hand lens or magnifying glass, measuring tape.
Getting there: The main parking lot near the EEC is currently closed. You can still park near the center, close to the intersection of Canyon Drive and Central Park Drive and walk over. You can also take public transportation. AC transit’s #67 bus stops very close to the EEC.
Bring Artwork for the Nature Journal Club Art Show!
If you are submitting framed artwork for the Nature Journal Club’s first art show. Please bring it with you when we meet in the morning. We will leave the artwork at the EEC before heading out into the field to sketch and explore."
Note: If you are submitting artwork, you will need to download and fill out two forms: one Release form for EBRPD Tilden park, plus a NJC Release and Artwork Inventory form for each piece you submit. Click the links or go to the Files section on this meetup site to download the forms.
On weekends, AC Transit Bus #67 goes there from right in front of the Berkeley BART station.
Driving anywhere in Tilden Park can be confusing and cell phone coverage is spotty around the center, so it's a good idea to bring a printed map of some kind. Watch for signs to the Little Farm.

Note that this is a guest post: not an official SF Sketchers event, but something that would probably appeal to a lot of our members.
