The exhibit showcases the diversity and beauty of the natural world found at the Churchville Nature Center, Silver Lake County Park and Nature Center, and Peace Valley Park and Nature Center. In June, 2009 Marlene Mendez began a yearlong photographic project at Churchville Nature Center, which is about a mile from Marlene's home. She was inspired by Vermont photographer David Middleton, who came to the Churchville Photography Club to speak about a yearlong project he had recently undertaken close to his home, explaining the advantages of returning often to the same nearby location.
Marlene's experiences, images, and resulting book "Churchville 365" sparked an interest in Susan Rachlin to embark on a similar photographic effort at Silver Lake. Both of the above-mentioned projects spurred Jean McKenna to set out to do a yearlong project at Peace Valley.
All three photographers agree that the experiences and memories afforded them by their projects were amazing. They hope others will be inspired to take full advantage of what these locales, and Bucks County overall, have to offer.
Discover the wonders of nature.
