  • Monday July 8 at 7PM – Presentation by Jeri Love – “The Astonishing World of Trees” 

As a photographer, Jeri will share with us how trees offer visual metaphors and chromatic cues for communication, meditation and self-reflection. She will show us how to use the camera as a decoder, finding and sharing the messages and stories in patterns, shapes, textures, structures, hues and colors that trees present.
