Reception To Celebrate "International Year of Forests"
Nov 10 2011
By WOUB Staff Writer
It's currently the International Year of Forests and one area organization is working to maintain forests and the jobs which depend on them.
The National Network of Forest Practitioners is hosting a reception tonight which will show the forest through photographs.
The Executive Director of the Practitioners, Colin M. Donahue, was a guest on WOUB TV's Newswatch last night and he says the event is more of a celebration than a convention.
"It's a time to celebrate the work of the people in the land, photographers, the year of the forest photographer and other folks who we've worked with. It's an exhibit of photographs from around the country and it's an opportunity just to get together and celebrate forests," says Donahue.
Donahue says the issue of protecting forests is currently a pressing one.
