Add to Calendar 23-11-2012 12-01-2013 15 Art Exhibit and Presentation about Jamaica Bay Ongoing through January 12, 2013, Queens Botanical Garden will exhibit ?Fragile Beauty: Jamaica Bay Landscapes,? a photographic showcase of landscapes by Queens-based artist, Rosalie Frost. In conjunction with the exhibit, QBG will present ?Jamaica Bay: Past, Present and Future,? a free lecture by Don Riepe, Jamaica Bay Guardian with the American Littoral Society, on Sunday, December 2 at 2pm. ?Jamaica Bay is home to amazing diversity of wildlife and is perhaps the most important urban estuary in the nation,? explained Mr. Riepe. In his roles with the National Park Service and American Littoral Society, his knowledge of the Bay spans a 30-year time period filled with environmental advocacy and education. His presentation on December 2 will include a briefing on the state of Jamaica Bay in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. The tenuous balance of nature is the inspiration for Ms. Frost?s work. ?With a wildlife refuge at its heart, the Bay's seemingly pristine natural habitats of water, beach and uplands are under threat from many sources that threaten its future viability -- but these do not yet diminish the inspiration to be found here, in this place where water and land warily meet," she said.
