"Through the Eyes of a Naturalist" Exhibit At Williamsburg Regional Library

The Historic Rivers Chapter of the Virginia Master Naturalists each year proudly display at the Williamsburg Regional Library 25 of the best photographs taken by Chapter members during the last year. This exhibit, called Through the Eyes of a Naturalist, demonstrates that Master Naturalists have never seen an ugly thing in nature. These photographs grant the viewer a glimpse into a Naturalist's inquiring mind.

Historic Rivers Chapter Virginia Master Naturalists take photographs while about their business as community natural resource volunteers. Their photos reflect their never-abating interest in the natural world that catches their interest and attention while volunteering in a variety of nature-related projects. People who are curious about our environment want to capture and hold tight those brief moments when light, shade, and perspective enhance detail, color, and form. The display will run through August 30 with a reception offered by the Historic Rivers Chapter on Sunday, August 19, from 2:00-4:00pm.

People who are curious about nature enjoy the outdoors and want to be a part of natural resource management and conservation in Virginia. They are perfect candidates to become trained and certified Virginia Master Naturalists. The Historic Rivers Chapter, based in Williamsburg, organized in 2007, is one of 30 chapters across Virginia and graduated its twelfth cohort last March. The Chapter has over 125 active members who volunteer in the community as educators, citizen scientists, and stewards of natural resources.
