Art for the wall 

Steph's best friend Gretchen created this piece of art to memorialize Ian.  A lover of nature, Ian can properly identify most tree's in the Northwest by both their common & Latin name.  Of all of the plants out there, the mere sighting of a white pine cone would bring forth an amount of giddiness abnormal in most grown men.  All profits will benefit the Memorial Fund.  The first round of paintings sold raised over $1,000 for NWAC.
