A picture is worth a thousand words

If you are following our fledgling forays into web 2.0 technology, I hope you take the time to enjoy the visual imagery. When I talk about the amazing passion of some of "our people" I am often thinking one of our most tireless cheerleaders - Rachel Banai .
An internationally-recognized photographer, she has been cataloging the transformation of our site from dumpsite to parkland, on a near-daily basis for the last six years. You can see a small sampling of some of her images in the flash movie on our home page.

Starting January 31st, Rachel returns to teach her popular Nature Photography classes in the Teaneck Creek Park. The classes meet either Saturday or Sunday morning in a series of five week cycles, and they are amazing! Part indoors for review, part outside in the park, the experience will leave you with an incredible urge to drop everything else in your life and just take pictures!

The Conservancy is grateful to the Puffin Foundation for underwriting the cost of the tuition so that we can offer it to our community for a very modest fee. Visit the Puffin Cultural Forum for dates and details.

Til then, see you on the trails!
