Aside from specific technology or fashion being pictured, black and white photography can pretty much have been taken at any moment in history (the past ~200 years anyway). In that regard, it can be as timeless as the trees. I enjoy that idea, although I suppose the trees are not truly timeless either; just consult the understory graves of Ash Trees or Dutch Elms or American Chestnuts. And just like the forests, and all inhabitants contained within, we never know our time is up either. So go and revel while you can.
Earlier this spring, I took pictures and wrote a blog about the native orchid restoration project at Riveredge Nature Center. Read the story here.
Our Fall Conservation issue has arrived. This one took a lot of work, it was a bit of our elephant to deal with. How do you tell a story that is actively changing, and one which your whole organization is based upon? Read to learn about the Schlitz Audubon Conservation Plan, raptors and how humans threaten their survival, and how you can begin to teach young children aspects of conservation.
Here is our Spring 2017 Birds edition of our quarterly Panorama publication at Schlitz Audubon. Give a read about migratory warblers, why feathers are so special, land improvement projects, and more.
