*GNSI Great Lakes - Fall 2013 Fernwood Exhibit 
*Submission Deadline:* September 2, 2013
The recent Great Lakes Chapter Spring Exhibit at Fernwood was a great 
success! Fernwood Nature Center and Botanical Gardens in Niles, MI, is a 
beautiful venue, both inside and out, and they have a lovely exhibit 
gallery. The Center has once again extended an invitation for GNSI 
members in the Great Lakes region (see below) to exhibit. The curator, 
Kathleen Keisselbach, says they are planning a Halloween education 
program about monsters in the garden, so fall botanical subjects, 
critters and birds eating prey and showing teeth, beaks, etc. as well as 
skulls and skeletons would enhance the exhibit.

      *ENTRY SUBMISSION BEGINS* in July and closes August 5, 2013. /Mark
      your calendar and plan an entry!/

      premier juried exhibition opportunity for GNSI members only,
      highlighting the subject matter of plants, birds, and pollinators.
