  Conference Resources (notes & things promised at the Heart of AO Conf 2016)
Posted by: NaomiG - 05-22-2016, 12:41 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (6)

KimSanDiego suggested a thread where resources from the conference could be posted - great idea!

Here are my nature journaling supplies I promised. Quick Disclaimer: This is what we use for painting in our nature journals out in the field, I am in no way saying these are the only or the best things available. This is just what we've come to use. 

Windsor & Newton small paint set - learn to mix colors.

A little vial for water, or use one section of the lid for water

mechanical pencil - keeps a fine point

black water color paint (not in my palette and never black enough when I mix blue and brown)

gouache - transparent white paint

paper towel - for dabbing excess water

Pilot Fineliner pen - for writing in nature journal

Strathmore Visual Journal - 5.5 x 8 in mixed media journal 34 sheets spiral bound - small and lightweight enough to carry and thick paper to prevent bleed through.

hydroflask water bottle - keeps water ice cold for 24 hours

Carson microbrite lighted microscope - takes a little getting used to, inexpensive field microscope

field guides - laminated & folded so it's durable in the field, useful in field because not a lot of info on it, shows all the different types on one page for quick id. Here are a couple examples:

Many AA and mods will be at the conference this weekend. Some are already en route. Please be patient if we don't approve new members or answer questions quickly. We'll be back next week!

AO's "Deep in the Heart" Conference Status:

We have exceeded our limit of 200, but because quite a few are commuting, we still have room for a few more. Last day to register (if spaces don't fill before then) is Sunday, April 24th -- that's TOMORROW!

  Conference scholarships!
Posted by: WendiC - 04-16-2016, 08:14 AM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (11)

Great news! thanks to the generosity of a very special lady, we have some scholarships we can award and we want to share them!

If you could not come to the conference before, but a 100 dollar donation towards your conference fee would make it possible, please email us and include a short note about why you think our conference will help you. You do need to be sure you can come w/that help, because we want to award them quickly!

Unfortunately, the deadline for special meal requests has passed, so you need to be able to eat the regular fare, or bring your own and eat out on the grounds or, I suppose, your hotel rooms, not sure what Lakeview prefers, except they say no outside food in their dining hall.
We have a limited number of these scholarships, so please only email if you are sure you can come with this help.

Email us at amblesideonline@gmail.com to tell us you are coming and want a scholarship. Priority goes to those we hear from in the next 3 days.
