Wyoming Valley RiverFest on June 23rd and 24th.  RiverFest is a 2-day celebration of the Susquehanna River and the River Common featuring programs for individuals and families on and off the water.
The NBLT is looking for folks who are willing to put in a few hours on Saturday, the 23rd and/or Sunday, the 24th to man a table with NBLT information.  There will be boats practicing and the brightly colored kayaks and canoes of the river sojourners arrive at Nesbitt Park. Plus there will be some great music.  On Sunday you’ll have a front row seat to watch the sojourners depart and the Dragon Boats complete. Last year the mayor of Wilkes-Barre’s Dragon Boat capsized making for a ‘daring rescue’!  Who knows what scenes you’ll have a chance to witness this year!  PLUS, you’ll be helping to get the word out about NBLT and our important land conservation mission. For more information about RiverFest visit http://riverfrontparks.org/river-fest-2012.php

TO VOLUNTEER:  Call the office at 570-696-5545 or email romanansky@nblt.org

From the Outback by Ashok Sinha

emus in south australia
Traveling in the Australian Outback has been something I have always wanted to do.  I got my first taste of it in South Australia, where this image (featured in the exhibition) was shot.  We were driving towards Beltana Station, a fully working sheep and cattle station in the Outback, and having started out early in the morning, the light still had a nice soft glow to it.
We had just pulled into a narrow dirt road, when out of nowhere, a row of emus appeared in the horizon.  They walked right in front of the car and I just stood there watching them as they moved hastily like a group of ladies rushing on their morning commute to work.
I didn’t click the shutter right away, but I waited until they almost blended into the landscape – that to me was the defining moment for this picture.
