Dorothy Kerper Monnelly Outdoor Photography Walk and Workshop
This will be a three-hour photo walk in a local landscape with 12 adult participants to think about and discuss the elements of connecting with the beauty of the landscape or “Seeing with the inner eye.” We will learn to “BE” in the landscape by clearing our minds and focusing our response to place. Critical elements of creating a successful image will also be discussed. Participants need to be prepared to be on their feet, exploring the landscape for a three-hour period. Sturdy outdoor footwear is recommended. The focus of this workshop is on seeing rather than photo technique but please bring a camera.
Saturday, Sept. 6
Location: TBA
- Space is limited
- Cost: members/$50

Cycling through the Water Cycle
Join Malia Morrison, from the Board of Stark County Commissioner’s Storm Water Education Program, for this FREE informational workshop! The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase II is a program required in Stark
County by the Environmental Protection Agency in an attempt to protect our water supply. As storm water runoff flows over the ground, it can pick up debris, chemicals, dirt, and other pollutants contaminating our water. Anything that enters a storm sewer is discharged untreated into waterbodies that we use for drinking, fishing, and swimming. Only 1% of our water is usable drinkable water. With the limited supply available, we must conserve and protect our water.
CEUs available for educators.
