John Muir Laws and The Foster are thrilled to host the second annual Wild Wonder Nature Journaling Conference—a global online gathering!

About this Event

Hosted by John Muir Laws in partnership with The Foster.

This event will virtually gather people who are passionate about nature, art, science, curiosity, and wonder—to share ideas, learn from each other, support each other, inspire each other, and have fun together learning about nature’s beauty.

The program begins Wednesday, October 7 at 8:45 a.m. with a special welcome by John Muir Laws and Tony Foster. Then from Wednesday through Sunday, there will be classes, virtual field trips, demonstrations, panel discussions, and keynote talks every 90 minutes with no overlap all day long, so you won’t miss a thing if you don’t want to!

More than 20 instructors and speakers will be presenting 50+ session-hours of programs and virtual field trips! See the Wild Wonder Page for more details and a list of teachers and speakers. Or click here to browse a detailed conference schedule.

Conference Pouch: For those making a donation of $100 or more (in addition to the conference registration fees), we are pleased to offer a limited number of a special edition Wild Wonder Nature Journaling Conference 2020 Pouches, featuring a print of original art by John Muir Laws as well as dot cards from Daniel Smith and QoR, and other nature journaling goodies (It will be similar to the popular 2019 Pouch seen here.) Pouches will be mailed after the event and domestic US shipping is included.

Online Auction: We will also be raising funds through an online auction during the event. If you would like to donate to that auction, please send us an email at and tell us about your donation.

Add a Donation to Your Order: The organizers have kept the conference ticket price as low as possible to enable many people to attend. If you are able to make an additional donation to help support this event and future Wild Wonder conferences, we would be so grateful for your support. Even $15-$25 would be a big help, and if you are able to donate more, please do to help support those who cannot. NOTE: If you’d like to donate $100 and receive the Limited Edition Conference Pouch, please select that option. Thank you!

Registration Tips: You can only purchase one Conference Pass per order and per email address (as your access is linked to a specific email). All programs will be held online through the interface, which will be set up as a virtual conference center. Eventbrite will connect you with, so you can manage your own classes and wait lists if there is a limit (most events won’t have a limit). NOTE: You must register for each class or program in order for the video links to be valid, so please use the same email for your account as you do for purchasing your registration ticket. Visit this page for other Registration Tips.

Video Only Pass: In mid-October, we will begin selling a $45 Video Pass, which will grant access to all the videos from the event.

Refunds: We are not able to offer refunds.
