The Eastside subchapter of the Washington Native Plant Society invites you to attend their program:
Photographing the Wildflowers of Mount Rainier National  

By Donovan Tracy, co-author of the Burke Museum’s Alpine
      Flowers of Mt. Rainier
on Tuesday, October 15, 7:30PM

at Bellevue Regional Library, 1111

110th Avenue NE, Bellevue, Meeting Room #1

Join wildflower photographer Donovan Tracy, in this exploration
of the alpine plants of Mount Rainier National Park. Donovan
will present an overview of the Park’s elevation zones (forest,
subalpine and alpine) through striking photographs of plants representative
of each zone and their respective habitats. He will also
share a few of his favorite wildflower hikes within the park and
show some of the endemic flowers he has found on these trails.
For photographers, this talk will include tips on good composition,
how to do a photo study of a plant in the field, and how the
purpose of the photograph will influence one’s approach. Is it
being taken for artistic purposes? For scientific documentation?
Both? A Q&A period will follow the presentation.
This is the second program offered by the newly-forming Eastside
sub-chapter of the Central Puget Sound Chapter of the
Washington Native Plant Society. It is free and open to all. If you
live on the Eastside or are interested in helping to establish this
sub-chapter please contact Bonnie Harpel at gidget142@gmail.
