SCOTSBURN – The Friends of Redtail Society educational “Talking Forests” series is resuming this fall with a special photographic presentation entitled "Four Seasons" with photographer Joella Arsenault.
Participants will get the chance to peer into the forest of the Friends of Redtail Society and see the land transition through four seasons.
"This photography presentation is about the small details that connect a forest together and are essential to its wildness," says Arsenault, who majored in photography at NSCAD and has spent many years walking this land.
The Friends of Redtail Society is a grassroots, non-profit organization that formed in 2006 to pursue a community-based solution to an industrial forest clear cut that was scheduled to take place in an upland watershed in western Pictou County.
Through the group's actions, a successful fundraising and awareness campaign, the Society was able to purchase the land, becoming both a guardian and student of the forest. The Talking Forests series is intended to inspire ideas and deepen understanding of what community forests are and can be.
Talking Forests: Four Seasons with Joella Arsenault takes place Sept. 15, from 2 to 3 p.m. at the Gammon Centre in Scotsburn, 4136 Scotsburn Road. More information is available at friendsofredtail.ca.
