Happy September! I hope you and your loved ones are happy and healthy.
In this month’s issue of Wild Kids Magazine we have information about fall wildflowers with wildflower journal pages, a nature mason jar collection project, and botanical coloring pages and information on cornflowers and teasel. We also have a sky wheel and phenology calendar for the month and all the usual nature journal pages, seasonal poetry, weather tree and more.
Here’s the link for the September 2021 issue:
Here’s a bit more information on some of this month’s topics.
