Slide Programs in April, 2023

Ohio is home to more than two thousand kinds of mushrooms, which exhibit a broad variety of shape, size, color, and habitat, as shown in the photos above. All mushrooms are fungi, which play a critical role in nature and an equally important role in the lives of people everywhere. The Western Reserve Land Conservancy (WRLC) is hosting my slide presentation, Fungus Among Us – Mushrooms of Ohio on Tuesday, April 18, from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm. This is a ZOOM program in which I will share several dozen color photographs of Ohio mushrooms taken throughout the Buckeye State over the past four decades, as well as guidelines and resources for finding and identifying some of Ohio’s most beautiful, interesting, and tasty (!) wild mushrooms. For more information and registration details visit the WRLC website.     

The Buckeye State includes a national park, a national forest and 12 state forests covering more than a million acres, 74 state parks, 800 miles of scenic rivers, and 125 state nature preserves, home to dozens of rare and unusual animals and plants. This program takes you on a seasonal photo tour of Ohio’s diverse natural areas and preserves, using images taken  during a 40 year, one-million-mile exploration of the Buckeye State.

This will be an in-person presentation on Saturday, April 22, from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm, at Milan Public Library in Erie County. The natural areas showcased in the slide program are also featured in my books, A Photographer’s Guide to Ohio – Volumes 1 and 2, and I will have copies of both these books available for purchase at the program.   For more information visit the Milan Public Library website.
