Field Trip – Kamelands
Leader: Ann Geise
Ann Geise is a nature artist who grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. She worked as the Artist & Exhibits Manager for 19 years at Cincinnati Nature Center, bringing nature closer to people through art. Her love of nature and the outdoors germinated in childhood, but her deep interest in trees took root after taking a Dendrology course at NKU. The course opened her eyes to the wonderful diversity of trees, and the challenging satisfaction of learning to identify them.
