All are invited to Turkey Run State Park Inn Saturday, April 25, at 7:30 p.m., to gain a new perspective on Richard Lieber.

Special guest Ed Timm will conduct a program on the life and times of Col. Richard Lieber, father of Indiana State Parks.

The one-hour program will reveal how Lieber's life experiences and association with fine arts combined to produce a forward-thinking conservationist.

Dozens of photographs, including the famous Indiana Murals, have been gathered from Indiana museums and libraries to frame the story.

Also, beginning at 10 a.m., Turkey Run State Park will run the program, "Seeing Nature Through New Eyes."

The program will conclude at 3 p.m.

Special guest Jean Jamsa will conduct a workshop as those in attendance will spend the day in the spring woods learning an easy drawing technique, creating personal booklets, learning native spring wildflowers and experiencing nature.

The workshop is designed for people of all ages.

Cost is $5 per person, a donation which will help defray costs of the workshop.

There will also be a picnic lunch and drink.
