Conference recordings are coming online. Here's the link. We'll be releasing about one a week for a while. There are a few notes to go with them:

  • Why are we selling them? AO stands for free and available to all. This time we're going to ask for a little bit for recordings, though. The proceeds will be used first to cover the very small cost of hosting and selling the files, then for special AO projects.
  • The sound quality is not professional (for the 2016 recordings). Thank you for listening with grace and understanding.
  • Enjoy!

Folksongs for the next school year have been added to the list! Each song has a link to at least one YouTube version and the same link through Viewpure. Clicking the song title should take you to lyrics.

Wendi's YouTube playlist is linked at the top.

  Conference Resources (notes & things promised at the Heart of AO Conf 2016)

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!
