The right feel for natural art

There was plenty of art that felt quite natural on the walls of Beaver Lake Nature Center. I took a moment or two during break from staff day from the library to capture the beauty of the work. Congratulations to all artists who earned a spot at this fabulous homage to our world. Advertisements

The birds were out in full color

I wondered why so many of my library colleagues were grouped at the windows of the big room at Beaver Lake Nature Center. Then I saw the bird houses. The trees. The birds.
