In hard times, libraries are more important than ever. Human beings need what books give them better than any other medium. Since ancient nights around prehistoric campfires, we have needed myth. And heroes. And moral tales. And information about the world beyond the nearest mountains or oceans.

Natures Woodland Gems

Wednesday, March 29th at 7:00PM

Speaker: Karen Campbell Naturalist and Macro-Photographer

The Upper Perkiomen Valley Garden Club is pleased to present Nature's Woodland Gems! The woodlands of Pennsylvania display an amazing wildflower show starting in early Spring. These gems are gorgeous but because they are small and near the ground, they can be hard to find and appreciate. Naturalist and Macro-Photographer Karen Campbell will present macro-images of these native beauties. Join us for this program about the Spring ephemerals that kick off nature's blooming season.

This program is free and open to the public

Sponsored by the UPV Garden Club, and the UPV Library
