If you are interested in the environment, equestrian activities and/or photography, the October 12th Washington College Academy of Lifelong Learning presentation is a must. Jim Graham will speak to “The Equestrian Life and the Land – a Photographic Essay”.
Mr. Graham will provide a stunning visual presentation of the many facets of the equestrian world, particularly in Maryland and nearby Delaware and Pennsylvania. He will focus on equestrian activities and the symbiotic relationship between the participants and the land. Supporters of equestrian events have long been strong financial benefactors in the effort to preserve open spaces and the environment we all share.
