LAKE PLACID - Renowned nature photographer Gerry Lemmo will host a presentation of his photos displaying the many varied life forms that co-exist above and below the tranquil surface of an Adirondack pond. The presentation will reveal some of the strangest - yet quite common - creatures a northern pond is host to, such as water scorpions, brook trout, and caddisflies.
This special presentation will be held Saturday, Feb. 7 at 8 p.m. at the Adirondack Mountain Club's High Peaks Information Center, located at Heart Lake in Lake Placid. This presentation is free and open to the public.
Lemmo's presentation is part the Saturday Evening Lecture Series, funded with support from Stewart's Shops. The Saturday Evening Lecture Series offers presentations on natural history, backcountry recreation, Adirondack history, art, and music.
Lemmo is a well-published wildlife photographer whose photos have appeared in magazines such as Adirondack Life, Adirondack Explorer, National Geographic World and Ranger Rick among many others. He has also been presenting slide programs of his photos to the general public for over 25 years.
