Bring the whole family out to enjoy the 2nd Annual Andrew Martin Memorial Fire Ecology Discovery Day! This fun, educational event will include themed activities, demonstrations, prairie burn tours (starting at 2 p.m.), and an art exhibit by featured keynote speaker, Phillip Juras. (Keynote at 1 p.m.)
Philip Juras’s landscape paintings, including scenes of wildland fire, have been exhibited at the Telfair, Morris, and Marietta-Cobb museums in Georgia, and the Chicago Botanic Garden in Illinois. He has published three books in conjunction with those exhibits and has been the featured speaker at numerous events. He holds degrees in fine art and landscape architecture from the University of Georgia and volunteers as a wildland firefighter type 2, or “ecoburner,” with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and The Nature Conservancy.
