Now on exhibit in the Visitor Center: 12 Months of Nature with Ed Mertz. Outside of Ed’s work as an engineer, he has enjoyed a lifetime of being out of doors, hiking through parks and woods, fishing, bird watching, observing all nature, and taking thousands of nature photographs. With that in mind, he has put together 12 photographs that show the diversity of nature and the change of seasons — each photograph showing a small piece of time.
