What a wonderful experience! To be outside in a beautiful place, with fun and talented people and paint to raise awareness for a fantastic cause! The Jacksonville Arboretum is a piece of heaven! You will find streams, trails, marshes, wildlife, a pond and so much more. We saw a huge majestic and undaunted Owl, just allowing painters to paint him, an otter with big whiskers, fish, tons of birds, wild flowers and more. One of my favorite parts was all the small signs with the information about the different types of trees and vegetation. I love learning this! If you are a nature loves its definitely worth a trip!
Mindy Hawkins and her husband Lad have such enthusiasm and love for nature that overflows into all they do. They have rounded up the most amazing team of friends and volunteers that made our time there a pleasure. A special thanks to Kitty our hostess with the mostest. XOXOXOX
