The Friends of Redtail Society educational series “Talking Forests” 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," say Arsenault, who majored in
photography at NSCAD and has spent many years walking this land.
The Friends of Redtail Society is a grass-roots, 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 Sunday,
September 15, 2013, from 2:00-3:00pm at the Gammon Centre in Scotsburn,
4136 Scotsburn Road. More information is available at friendsofredtail.ca.
