"I was that kid you could always find turning over rocks in streams, looking for what wonders nature would disclose to me," says Greenslade. His curiosity about the natural world, led him to a life as scientist and organizational executive. Now in retirement, Dr. Greenslade is again doing what he did when he was ten years old -- turning over rocks and sculpting and painting the wonders that nature discloses.

"I lived a serious life, but now in my dotage, I am just letting the kid out again, " Greenslade smiles."It's more fun than an old guy deserves."

Greenslade’s latest book, Visitations: A Nature-Lover’s Journal ( will on view at the reception.
