February 28th through March 3rd, John Muir Laws, the naturalist, educator, and artist, visited each elementary school in PUSD and challenged students to “be intentional about turning up the curiosity in their brain.” John Muir Laws is a wildlife biologist, a Research Associate of the California Academy of Sciences, the author and illustrator of multiple books and field guides about nature and natural history, a regular contributor to Bay Nature magazine, and the founder of the Bay Area Nature Journal Club. Additionally, he is a primary author and editor of the interdisciplinary curriculum: Opening the world through Nature Journaling. As his biography states, “He teaches nature study and natural history workshops that incorporate illustration and scientific note-taking as a means to greater observation, memory, and curiosity.” Laws is as Rob Wade introduced him to the students “the ultimate master of field journaling”.
