Colorful fall foliage, snow-capped evergreens, stunning spring blooms – share your favorite photos of trees in the Wellesley Tree Photo Exhibition, a year-long project highlighting town trees and the importance of preserving and protecting them. Wellesley residents are encouraged to contribute photos to the exhibit, which will run at the Wellesley Free Library in the Carol and Alan J. Bernon Media Room through Earth Day – April 22, 2017.
This local project was conceived by a town resident who was inspired by the 2015 Paris United Nations Conference on Climate Change. Participating nations at the conference were invited to mark the upcoming 50th Anniversary of World Earth Day in 2020 by planting 7.8 billion trees globally, one for every person on earth.
Photos can be submitted at any time — there is no deadline. The goal is to have pictures up throughout the year, until Earth Day 2017. Depending on how many pictures the NRC receives, they will rotate them out every few weeks. Click here to find out how to submit your photos!
