I am trying to decide what kind of nature study journal I want to purchase for this coming school year. I really like the idea behind Journaling a Year in Nature. I am also planning on using Outdoor Secrets and the Outdoor Secrets Companion. I noticed that Outdoor Secrets Companion has some ideas using a nature study notebook. Would Journaling a Year in Nature mesh well with the nature journal entries for Outdoor Secrets Companion, or would a blank journal work better this year?
