Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen & Robbyn Smith's Years of Observations & Notations at Hazel Ridge Farm

Date:  March 01, 2019  -  May 31, 2019
Location: 702 W. Kalamazoo St., Lansing, MI 48909 (Jump to map)

This exhibit can be enjoyed by everyone. Writers, artists, naturalists, kids and adults. Gijsbert has made his philosophy of “make your hobby your career” a mantra that carries over to his daily life. His love of nature, drawing and patient observations can be seen throughout the journal entries and images. From the slow decomposition of a buck, with daily visits by wary crows, to the life cycle of a family of Canada geese.  Wetlands equipped with all manner of bird boxes and natural nesting cavities entice bluebirds, wood ducks, herons and mergansers (to name a few) for him to sketch and observe. These can all be seen in the expansive exhibit of his years of nature journaling.
