Are you, or is someone you love, an avid lover of Nature? Our family began a nature journal a few years back when our children just began their hiking adventures, and I came across Herbarium notebooks at the shops. While I have heard of Nature journals, I had yet to hear of Herbarium Notebooks (or Botanist Notebooks).
A Herbarium Notebook, or a Botanist Notebook, is a notebook designed to store all of your precious findings in nature. The flowers, leaves, and other small treasures that you wish to keep in your journal. These notebooks are perfect for pressing flowers and taking notes on what you have observed.
The best Herbarium Notebooks are sustainable and handmade by those with a wonderful understanding of Botany. Today, I'd like to share with you our top 4 picks for Herbarium Notebooks to take your nature journaling to the next level.
