South Shore Natural Science Center in Norwell, MA.  Kay used the grant
funding to encourage preservation of the rare pine barren habitat.  

NESBA welcomes Mark Klingler

NESBA welcomed Mark Klingler, who for the past 30 years has been professionally and passionately, as we discovered, working at scientific illustration for scientists as well as publishing in scientific books, journals, and showing his work in museums and galleries.

His generosity with each of us was astonishing. Saturday morning he showed us a power point presentation which encompassed his own work and process. Lots of little tips for us were welcomed by one and all. 

After lunch Mark led a demo and class on dissections and gave us many tips for producing beautiful botanicals. Sunday he continued the workshop. We took him to the Mt Auburn Cemetery to check out the botanicals and the Glass Flower museum to see the new display cases and the flowers as well as the Blaschkas' sea creatures. If you have a chance, go to to the MT Auburn Cemetery to see all the beautiful specimens. Who knew Olmstead would have produced such a treasure trove of items for us?

Thank you to Emmi who loaned us her awesome pitcher plants, venus flytraps and other plant "creatures" delightful for us to see and use for the workshop.
